I just finished this chessboard. I got the idea from Steve Ramsey.

Great job. Thanks for showing the interior details, too. I especially like that all the pieces aren’t rolling around inside and slowly wearing off their details.

David, awesome built. Welcome to LJ

Steve has been my tutor since my beginnings. And he still is.
I did also make his chessboard as a gift for on eof my sons, and I blogged it out as my first entry to LJ.

Did you notice any change in SteveĀ“s videos from that time to date? Yes, that was a terrific long woodworking teaching class. You were required to apply a lot of different techniques. Not for mere mortals indeed.

You made a great chessboard.

Yes, another beatiful chess board.
Great storage space for the pieces.

Fernando, Steve is a lot more animated in his videos now and seems to have a lot of fun with them. His chessboard video is what got me interested in woodworking again. I went out and bought a bunch of tools and tried to make his board over a year ago and failed miserably. I made some other things to get the hang of the tools I bought before trying again. I am happy with how it turned out.
