Well, I started this chessboard 5 years ago. Yes... 5. I orginally made 3, and well, the 3rd just kinda sat for a while. Well, I finished it last weekend. It is mahogany and maple. Thanks for looking.

I can't believe no one noticed that good looking young man holding that chessboard? Beautiful blue eyes. That child will break someone's heart one day.

Beautiful board, I second the thoughts of making the pieces for the board.

Clay, the fact that you returned and finished the piece after 5 years just shows you are tenacious! ;-)

That's a beautiful looking board and a handsome young man displaying it!

If it makes you feel any better, I've been thinking about building a chess board for 5 years and haven't even started yet! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I just thought that was a really big chest board and that Clay had just shaved. His son looks just like him. :lol: :lol:

Great job on the chess board Clay. And Andrew your shop apprentice is doing a superb job displaying it for you.:icon_thum That chess board sure looks a heck of a lot better then the one I made in 8th grade shop class.

Here is the other chessboard I made. I have one each for each of my sons. The first one has been finished with tung oil for 5 years. The same boards of wood was used in making each of them. I think they are both very different. I used different border wood so the boys could tell them apart, and not argue which is which...
