This is a chessboard built by a student in my woodshop class. It is made of solid maple and walnut, and finished with wipe on poly. These are some of the better ones, but ever student makes there own of varing design.
A simple yet elegant cross of cocobolo is mounted in a slab of Madrone which has wonderful markings and maintains the natural shape and texture of the original wood. This piece measures x x and is finished with a satin spray lacquer.
