Chess Board

This is a walnut and maple chess board that we just made! The squares are 2 1/4″ × 2 1/4" and the playing board surface is 18″ × 18″. This one was a pickle to make because it fought us all the way! There are are 8 coats of lacquer on it giving it a glass finish. My beautiful wife sanded in between each coat. She does all my sanding and has become so good at it! Thank you for looking!

Beautiful! My sister has asked me to make her husband one for next Christmas.

Excellent chess board and super finish.
