Default Chess Board

Here is one of my early projects. I enjoyed making this chess board. It had lots of router steps, and this was before I had a router table.

They do say it's the quiet ones to look out for! that is simply beautiful Rolf. If that was one of you're early projects, when are we to be dazzled with you're later ones?

Thanks everyone for the nice compliments. This board has compartments for all the pieces, which is not shown in the picture I posted.
Thanks again.
