This chess/checker table was built using a Claro Walnut round and inlaying a Teak and Maple playing surface into it. The vertical stand is a cool piece of Dwarf Misletoe Fungus infected Juniper with full scribed Juniper feet. The chairs are Juniper stumps with Claro Walnut seats and English Walnut backs.

Really beautiful set. Great craftsmanship. Would really enjoy sitting down and playing a game on that. Nice work!

Looks more like a checkerboard table to me. But seriously very nice quality job and a major accomplishment. Chess pieces would only distract.
