Chessboard and Chess Pieces

Post by sircarveabit »

I thought I would share a couple of pictures of the chessboard that I made. I did something a little different for the chessboard. I pocketed out all the squares from a piece of cherry wood. Then I stained half of them with a dark mahogany stain. Then I used an epoxy filler to cover the entire board. After I made the board people kept asking about the chess pieces, so after learning how to do a 2 rail sweep and several tries, I finally came up with some square chess pieces.

I love the pieces AND the board. The square look is very 'battle-ready', and reminds me of a stone set we had when I was a kid. Congratulations!
