    Chess Board

    I made this Chess Board for my step son, it was originally to be a Christmas gift but turned into a March Birthday gift. The frame of the board is black walnut with a Rockler checkerboard pattern inlay. The inside edge of the board has a small strip of Brazilian Cherry that I had to work in somewhere (I had some given to me and was dying to use it). The board it self is Hard Maple and Black Walnut strips edge glued, ripped, flipped and edge glued again. I do not have access to a drum sander so I reluctantly went at it with a hand plan and was very happy with the results. Finish is simply 3 coats of Tung Oil.
