I’ve recently got into woodworking. It’s something I always wanted to do. So for my first project I decided to make a chess board. Not as east as I thought. So to make a long story short, I’ve been working on this in my spare time for the last four months. I wanted to share a couple of pictures and ask for some advice on finishing.
Keep in mind this project is not done, I plan on adding a purpleheart boarded around the ebony boarder and routering. I also plan on making a box and a draw on each side.
Finishing: my thoughts were to shellac the board and then lacquer. I then would wet sand and finish with pumice stone and rotten stone. Let me know what you think about this.
Like I said this is my first project, please be kind haha.
Any insight would be great.
