This is my take on the vertical chess set. I created this for a young lady who wanted a twist on the game of chess. Once she saw a picture of a set online she knew she had to have one. I used Eucalyptus and Maple to complete this project and finished it off with three coats of Danish oil. It is heavy(approx 45 lb) as it is completely solid wood(no veneer). I used a 200 lb test strip kit on the rear in order for her to have it mounted on the wall. Now my wife wants one.

I’ve made a few of these but after seeing your take on the design, I think I may make a couple of modifications to my frame :)
