The board is made of walnut and hickory. The board itself has feet and can sit independently on a surface. There is storage underneath. The board can be used either by itself or sitting on the storage base as a stand. The chess pieces were printed on my 3D printer. The “black” pieces were printed with a simulated wood filament. The engraving on the side was done with my laser engraver then filled in with wood filler, sanded and finished.

You did a great job on your Chess Board and storage box. The two contrasting woods will make for much easier play. The idea of using the laser and the filling it in is terrific. I hope you play as good as you are an artisan. Thanks for inspiring.

Kelly, great job on the board. Those 3D printers are amazing.
I saw a doco recently of a 3D machine actually printing clothing.
