Chess set made of Cherry and Walnut.

This is the second chess set I’ve made, and although this piece is a little bit fancier in the joinery, bottom, and magnetic closures, basically all the things a non woodworker wouldn’t give a second thought about, or even care to look at, there is one glaring mistake. Once you see it, you can’t unsee it. Unfortunately, its also one of those mistakes that even a non-craftsman can spot, and know its a mistake rather than a function of the creation process.

Even with this flaw, the set functions just fine for its purpose, and will look nice even when not in use. I won’t point it out, but I’m sure most viewers will be able to spot it. As for me, I’m glad this is a gift, because all I can see when I look at it is that goofy mistake. I’m sure everyone on here knows exactly what that feels like. If you’re one of the lucky ones that doesn’t know this feeling, consider yourself lucky. You’ll experience it at some point.
