The idea for this project came several years ago from our oldest daughter. She wanted to make a chessboard for her younger brother & sisters. She did some research and we came up with a game plan.
We were both very pleased with how it went together and how nicely it turned out. My wife sewed a little red suede bag for the chess & checkers pieces and it was the hit for Christmas!
Over the past few years, I have been working with the design. I have added feet to stabilize the wood. Then I made a few with drawers to store the chess pieces.
In the past few months, I have continued to play around with the style. Most recently I enlarged the board for larger pieces and included a framework around the actual chess board.
I also divided the drawer into two compartments to include both chess and checkers pieces.
As we prepare inventory to go into the galleries for the summer months, chess & checker boards on are the list.
If you like what you see or have some ideas that you would like to see implemented, email or call and we can work on the design together.
Until next week,
