I began this project many years ago, and finished it this year. This chess set and table was made with wood I harvested in a little forest I own. The chessboard table is 32 inches X 32 inches. The pieces are made of sugar maple and stored in the four drawers when not in use. The table is made of walnut, poplar and maple. The difficulty was to carve the 4 knights' heads. I made all the pieces individually on my lathe, filled the bottom with lead, and finished with Wipe On Poly.
