Walnut and Cherry checkerboard with lift off top for storage of the playing pieces. Wanted to make the storage box a little unique so I altered the walnut and cherry on the sides and used a miter joint to show a good contrast.

Mike, I like the idea that the board is in one piece. The finger lift is a good, straight forward design. Nice work.
