  1. Checkers Table

    Built this checkers table for friend that wanted a Christmas gift for her husband. It was a late notice kind of thing and while I wanted to build the checker board from scratch, time did not allow. Thus, we found a nice wood checker board online, and I built the table around the board. Used a...
  2. Weekend woodshop apprentice - chess board

    I had a friend come visit for 2 nights. He asked if I had any design ideas for a chess board. I didn't, but everyone else's projects on Lumber Jocks gave us more than enough designs to chew on. So while the ladies and the baby were catching up in the living room we hung out in the woodshop...
  3. Wine Crate Top Chess/Checker Board

    I cut down to size and stained an old wine crate top, then cut cork chess pieces and birch branch checkers pieces for a more rustic look.
  4. Checkers Set

    This checkers board started out as a Steve Ramsey chess set, however I failed to account for blade kerf when I was initially cutting and gluing the top. Because of that miscalculation, I had to glue the final row of squares individually and then add them to the rest of the playing surface which...

  7. A Fun & Easy Project

    After a recent difficult project which took longer to build and was harder then expected, I needed an easy fun project to build.

  10. Chess board with storage.

    The board is made of walnut and hickory. The board itself has feet and can sit independently on a surface. There is storage underneath. The board can be used either by itself or sitting on the storage base as a stand. The chess pieces were printed on my 3D printer. The "black" pieces were...

    Here is a checkerboard that I made for my wife. The board is made from maple and walnut, the storage box is made from red oak with a hardboard bottom, and the checkers pieces are made from popular. The storage box was made using dovetails for all four corners and dados were cut the length of...
  12. Checker Board

    I don't play chess, but my daughter loved the idea of making a board we could play games on. This one is made out of Peruvian Walnut and Maple. It ended up not being completely square, so i just decided to round the edges and keep it the way it is, instead of putting a border around it. I glued...
  13. Maple and Mahogany Chessboard

    I wanted to have a nice chessboard to play chess on, so I did the natural thing a woodworker would do-make one! I used two inch squares for the board which seem about right. I replaced the pieces shown in the photo with some higher quality tournament pieces. If I was to do it again, I'd add...
  14. Multi-purpose board for Beer Swap 2021

    It's always a challenge to make something interesting and unique for the beer swaps. This year was no exception. After considering and rejecting a whole host of ideas I settled on a multi-purpose board with multi-functional accessories. It is a cutting board, that doubles as charcuterie...
  15. Game boxes

    I made a Chinese checkers board for a present and had a some extra practice and off cut pieces left over. I saw one of our fellow wood workers postings and decided to make these. One side is a cribbage board and the other two person Chinese checkers. I used finger joints on the corners and a...

  19. Chess Board with Piece Storage

    The top and accents are walnut and maple (which is not terribly original, but I do like the look). The cabinet is oak. Above each of the drawers, there is a brass strip. The only purpose of these is an accent, so that the knobs would not be the only brass in the project (which would have made...
  20. First Cutting Board

    I decided that I needed to get in on the cutting board club, so here is my first. This cutting board is about 300mm x 500mm x 40mm, which is just about as wide as my planner could handle. I think next time I will big a larger one and just use the router planning sled I saw in FWW. The woods...
