Here is a Shaker Style Chess Table made for one of our customers. Mike Irvin made the table, and I made the marquetry panel with oak leaves and acorns, inlays and the initial “T”. The marquetry lifts up with a lift to reveal the customers chess set.

Dennis,

The table is lovely. Your marquetry looks great and it is super how it is accented with the lifted section.

Beautiful work I love the way the center marquetry panel comes off to reveal the chess set. Beautifully done with all the natural colors of wood

Good looking table sir, looks a lot like Stickley’s craftsman, or the take off “mission” style. Makes no difference how it is labeled, beautiful is always beautiful. Very nice table and inlays ! goodon’ya.

Wonderful work as always Dennis. The pop-up makes it extra special. I think I see a bit of Morris influence there too.
