Good to see you back Branch, hey that is really some great work, good therapy and hopefully good dollars from the client. I reckon he would be very pleased. Well done and thanks for sharing.

It’s a great chest set. All that work shows many hours of enjoyment. The drawers are a nice addition.

Glad to see you back Branch. Great Chess set and I bet it took a lot of time.
I’m sure your customer will be very happy.
Thanks for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Excellent job, Branch! I’m guessing the board itself is maple & walnut, and framed w/ oak; correct? What woods did you use for the pieces?
