  1. 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...
  2. Chess Trophy

    I want to thank Maplerock for taking such beautiful picture of the trophy. This was made for the Chess Club Of Southern Indiana Championship.

Each pawn becomes a little quicker. I turn them all on 3" faceplates but...

    This is on Craigs List in Buffalo NY . Looks like a wooden sliding table with brass adjustment hardware. Maybe it should be in a museum - seems like a good deal for $125. -Jack
