Shattered Chess Board Display Piece

It was a lot of fun making this "broken" chess board for Lynn to display her over sized chess pieces. With a few photos of the pieces and some dimensions Lynn and I landed on a color scheme and we got the project rolling.

Board is approximately 15" x 15" with 4" squares.
The veneer playing field is Cherry & Maple on one side;
Figured Ash & Ovangkol on the other. Edge banding is Cherry, Maple, and Walnut banding.

A very fun project and a clever way to display her giant chess pieces.

    This is the second board that Amy has made for me. I wanted a partial chess board to display my 6 large chess pieces and I wanted it to look as though it were broken. I loved that Amy could see my vision and gave my project life. I have a one of a kind work of art in my living room! Thank you (again) Amy!
