I finished this one earlier this year as a ” just for fun” kinda project. The chairs are made form White Ash with seat boards salvaged from the local saw mill scrap pile. The table is also Ash and the top is reclaimed 8/4 hart pine joists taken for a 100 year old vacant home that was the hart of Cleveland. Last year alone there were 1500 homes in Cleveland scheduled to be torn down. If I only had a nickel for every sheet of plywood used to board up the homes in Cleveland I could retire. But since I don’t get a nickel I will will keep on using this fantastic wood to my benefit. The game board top was carved in with a router, finished it all in teak oil so it is suitable for indoor or out door use. The checkers are cut form Ash and Birch branches. Thanks for looking.

Very cool table, I just love that old wood. I like the curve on the top rail of the chair on the right side, very nice!
