HOW TO – Build a chess board and MASSIVE DIY chess roundup

Alex writes in…

This tutorial will show you how to build an heirloom-quality, all-wood chess or checkers board with just a few small pieces of lumber. This is a great project for using up some small, otherwise unusable pieces of wood you may have laying around your shop. It’s very easy to build even with woodworking hobbyist tools, and it doesn’t consume a lot of expensive wood. The method described here will result in a handsome board with perfectly aligned squares, a sophisticated (but simple) inlay, and a polished finish.
