Last month we had our first annual Wooden Game Challenge on YouTube. This was my entry. It’s made with black walnut and maple. The board is all hand/power made. The checkers pieces were cut on my CNC. Finished with boiled linseed oil.

I have a video of the project on my YouTube channel here:

I plan to follow up with chess pieces.

Fantastic! I love chessboards and could make collection of just that. Great looking game board. Please do post when you make the chess pieces!

Nice set, sorry I missed that challenge as I love to build games. Where did it take place?
