Beautiful Chess Board Keith.
Good to see you back.

Thanks for sharing


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Great chess board, what are the pieces like that you are going to pair it with?

Also, is the main tool for that project a table saw?

-- Go team!

Hi Woodforbrains I made this chess board for a friend who had a set of old fashioned chess pieces that were larger than standard pieces
The main tool for the project would have been a band saw.
Thanks so much for the interest
