  1. OSB Chessboard

    YAOP (Yet Another OSB Project) - Chessboard Unlike many chessboards, this one could not be sanded or planed after glue-up. Since the base material is OSB - stained and finished before being sliced and re-glued, I had to get the material planed precisely, and then very carefully aliigned. I...
  2. Chessboard with Drawer

    This is a chessboard built by a student in my woodshop class. It is made of solid maple and walnut, and finished with wipe on poly. These are some of the better ones, but ever student makes there own of varing design. The only thing that is constant is the grid in the middle. Everything else...
  3. Chessboard/cabinet

    I have never had anything but a cheap cardboard chessboard until I made this (and another for my son) from walnut and maple salvaged from the lumber yard's cut-off pile.
  4. Chessboard Table

    Chessboard Table I made my Junior year in High School for a state competition that I made the finals for. The table is made out of black walnut, oak and maple. The chessboard is maple and black walnut, the border around the chessboard is oak, the legs are oak and the pedestal is black walnut...
  5. Chess board (Inspired by Steve Ramsey)

    I first want to thank Steve Ramsey for the inspiration and design. This is my first project post. Unfortunately I did not carve the pieces although I would have LOVED to have taken credit for them. Made from maple and walnut with maple inlay and burgundy flocking in the drawers. It was...

    Constructed using 1 slab of black walnut and 1 slab of pecan. Border is purpleheart. Trim is cherry and pecan.
  7. Burl Wood Chessboard

    I had some left over scraps from veneering so I made a Redwood Burl and Maple Burl Chessboard. The inlayed on the border was my first attempt at doing this. The border wood is Walnut.
  8. Baby hammers

    I had first internet order (by Facebook, in my country) to make baby hammers of wood. The main term was to make them of one piece of wood, but I couldn't resist to make things a little complicated. I made them with stripes of apple and beech. I used bandsaw to cut them. Finish- food frendly...
  9. a convex chess board

    Following in the footsteps of deltxguy, here is a new project of mine that did not work very well (hey! its meant for playing with convex chess pieces! exactly as I designed it! yeah, right). Anyway, not falling into the trap of making a glued mitred frame, I fell into another trap. Don't know...
  10. Latest Chess Board for customer. Walnut and Curly Maple

    This latest chess board turned out really nice. The curls in the maple are amazing to see in person, as the camera just doesn't capture it right. Walnut and Maple are the only woods used.
  11. My third Chessboard

    Inspired by an episode of Woodworks, I used David Marks technique to create the light and dark squares (quilted maple and jatoba) and then put my own personality into the decorative elements. The corner 'watchtowers' are mahogany I treated with potassium dichromate to darken the wood. My first...
  12. Chessboard II

    For my second attempt at a chessboard, I used 3/4" solid cedar salvaged from the master bedroom closet demolition that my wife and I completed this summer. The squares are 1.75" x 1.75" and cut from long strips (allow 2-3" more than you estimate), glued together, then squared at edge and ripped...
  13. Chessboard from Woodsmith

    Built this chessboard and storage unit from Woodsmith plans for a Christmas present. Plans called for the board to be constructed from veneer pieces mounted to a hardwood frame. Woodsmith gave ample instructions on the technique, which I followed…up to a point. Alas, I totally screwed up the...
  14. 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...
  15. Vertical Chess Board

    I always thought building one of these would be neat. The idea is to be able to play a casual game of chess. Since it hangs on the wall, the game can take days or even weeks. I used wenge (dark) and anigre (light) veneer for the checkerboard design. Each square is 1.5" x 3". They are veneered...

    I am continuing catching up with the birthdays. This time is my son Fernando, born on January 29th. So only 3 months behind!!. From now on I think I will start giving vouchers for wooden gifts. This time I used walnut and maple for the board. No table, nor drawers or box for the time being...
  19. Two-In-One: Chess Board and Chess Pieces

    These are actually part of two separate projects, both the subjects of classes I taught at the local Lee Valley Tools in Kelowna BC. The first was a pyrography project on a basswood slab. I wanted to teach the basics of pyrography, showing how to create different textures. The common way to...

    Hello fellow Lumberjocks! It's been another long while since I've posted anything. But here I am again. After months and months of tinkering, failing, planning and recovery, I present to you all, my third chessboard. I'll post pics of my second one here in a little while. I didn't realize I...
