Cbd Ph_Wenge Red Gum-Hb
This chess board is 17” square. Each square is just over 2” and is made using 8 triangles. Two types of wood are in each square. Four kinds of wood are on the chess board. The dark square has “Purpleheart” from Central or South America, and “Wenge” from West Africa. The light square has “Red Gum” from the South Eastern United States, and “Hackberry” from Missouri. There are 612 pieces in the over lay.
Onthe back, I signed it, listed the wood, dated, and numbered it. After the date the words “Foot Cut” let you know I made it on a foot powered table saw my brother helped me make around 1992.
This gives a completely different look to a chessboard. When not being used as a chess board, it is made to hang on the wall from one corner. It makes a very beautiful wall hanging.
