Chess and Checkers Board

Playing a game with a friend or a member of your family is definitely quality time for both of you.


Chess is an exciting game to play, and an elegant game to look at. Chess is played with six different pieces and each piece a tiny sculpture. The chess pieces pictured here are made on a bandsaw, each piece formed with a compound cut. The board doubles as a board you can play checkers on as well. This is an easy to follow plan with all the instructions you will need to build this chess board and pieces.


Enjoy making this chess board that will add style to any room, and of course it's fun to play the game too.
