Walnut and Maple Chess Board

This is the first thing I have put together in a good while. Made from walnut and maple, the squares are oversized at 2-3/4 inches. The bare wood looks so good, doesn’t show in the pics, I hate to put anything on it. Maybe just one coat of clear topcoat. After looking at this thing I think I will replace the two knobs, looks like it has eyes looking back at me. Thanks for looking.

Woods: walnut and maple

Nice looking chess board. Walnut and maple make such a nice contrast. Are you making the pieces for it, too?
