This is a Chess set I made a while back, Inspired by Steve Ramsey’s video from way back a few years ago (2008). I gave the set to my mom. the chess board is made of walnut and maple and the table is made of walnut and tiger maple, finished per Steve’s video with lacquer.
The chess pieces are from the Chess Store.
