  1. Combination cutting board/chess board in case you want to knight your filet

    Just kidding, with all the cutting boards on here I thought the title might catch some interest. It is really a chess board made of Wenge and BE Maple. The storeage unit/base is lace wood. The colors all work together well. Need to find some chess pieces and checkers to complete the project. Not...
  2. Snakewood Chess Board

    Snakewood and curly maple squares with a cocobolo frame. Finished with Pour-on high gloss bar finish by EnviroTex
  3. chess board

    This is my first chess board and i am fairly pleased with the results. I have not figured out what to do about the chess pieces (quality pieces are more expensive than i originally thought). originally the inside was going to consist of compartments for each piece and during the building...
  4. 1st chess board

    When i first made this i thought i would be using three woods, but then i read some info about popular with the many differnet shade variations. When i went to the depot i found one that had green and lavender mixed but was unable to have those shades compliment the entire piece. I ended up...
  5. 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.
  6. Curly Delight Chess board

    Came across some fairly nice curly maple and had not used any in a chess board, so I made this up. Along with Peruvian Walnut, it turned out rather nicely.
  7. Chess board made for pub table

    Friend of mine wanted a custom chess board that he could place on top of his pub table. Needed to match his pool table too. Standard wood movement with enclosed hardwoods is a concern of mine, but he wanted it completely one level. I mixed some dark stain in with some danish oil to get the...
  8. Chess Boards

    In these projects experienced some surprises resulting from using two types of hardwood and soft, when the rains began and the humidity increased significantly. But anyway is what i have. Here, I do not have much variety of woods available. The wood is very expensive. My next step will be a...
  9. Chess Board

    I made this project in Winter Term 2009 at the University of Oregon. I am member of the U of O club chess team and it seamed like an appropriate project (my first after being hired in the Craft Center woodshop). I entered it into the staff art show that February too. I'll post more photos as I...
  10. Walnut and Maple Chess Board

    This chessboard is made of solid walnut and maple and finished with High Gloss Polyurethane No veneers were used to make this chess board. The squares are made of 1/2 inch pieces and are left visible underneath to show the solid construction. The border is made using a layering process then...
  11. End Grain Chess Board

    This is the only picture I can find currently of the chess board I built for my son back in 2010, so sorry for the goofy kid pose. I made this project using Padauk, Hard Maple, and Curly Maple. This was the first project I made utilizing my new (at the time) Performax 22-44 Drum Sander. I...
  12. F. Lanier Graham chess set and board

    I built this F. Lanier Graham chess set, (http://www.moma.org/collection/works/4746?locale=en) with a split board for my sons Christmas present. Thanks to http://lumberjocks.com/Douger for the ideas. I wasn't thrilled with the set at first but it grew on me since my son's an architect and his...
  13. Chess Board

    The squares are made of curly maple and I think a type of cherry. (I was told it was Brazilian cherry, but it's not like any I've seen before. It was a good deal on about twenty BdFt so I got it anyway.) The trim is mesquite and the frame is ash. Finish is 4 coats TO/MS/Satin Poly (Cabot)...
  14. Chess Table

    First important stuff: - What is inside this Traditional ~27" square table using turned pedestal and 4 legs? Top: Curly Maple and figured Walnut alternating squares with more Maple/Walnut/Bubinga framing main board, all edged with more 8/4 walnut hosting decorative edge beading. Table...
  15. Minimalist mixed end grain chess board

    I've seen this type of end grain chess board around and decided to try my hand at it. I didn't make the chess pieces…they're from the Frank Lloyd Wright Collection. Board is 14" square. Wood used for light squares: maple, ash, white oak, beech, yellowheart. Wood used for dark squares...
  16. Chess Board and Cabinet

    I recently finished this chess board. It's made from Maple and Walnut. The top has thin layers of hardwood glued to a plywood base. I finished it with brushing lacquer which was my first time trying it. I'm very pleased with the results. I've got a lot more detail on how I made this on my...
  17. 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...
  18. Custom Solid Surface Chess Board - Pear, Leopard Wood, Ebony, & Walnut!

    OK - I for one have done some digging and found that the quality of chess boards available in the world today is just well POOR! They are all paper thin veneers, just junk! I hate paper back veneer, I dislike lacquer … and generally - great it's ALL walnut and maple or maybe a very high end...
  19. Chess Board and Table

    I have been working on this chess board for close to a year, on and off. By far the longest time was spent making the actual pieces. There are details and videos of a few on my blog . The sides of the board box are made of peruvian walnut. The profile was made using a cove cutting setup on...
  20. Maple Burl inlay chessboard

    I made this for a friend. It was my first inlay project and was definitely a skills-stretcher for me. The Burl is maple, chessboard is Black Walnut and maple. The butterfly is also Black Walnut. There are two drawers, lined with green felt with white oak piece dividers. A fun project and now...
