I just finished a chess board made for my son and daughter-in-law. It’s a Christmas surprise, but they don’t read LJ so I am safe posting it early. I started with a piece of walnut given me by a friend, and a maple board from a local store. The top is walnut and maple with a walnut inlay around the playing area. The box is walnut with maple drawer handles. The base is plywood framed with oak (I ran short of maple). It is 17.25 inches squared and 3.75 inches high. Not perfect, but I think they’ll like it.
