Chess set.


This was fun and easy. My wife's hand shows the scale, is it isn't very big but perfect to put in the camper...

  • That is so fun! How did you create the checked pattern on top?

  • I actually learned how to do this when I was in Shop in high school. It is very simple to do but can be difficult to line up the strips of wood. I cut strips about 10 inches long and glued them in a dark light pattern and then cut them in strips again in the opposite direction then shifted them one block every other strip. It saves trying to glue each and every block together in which I believe would be a nightmare....
