Cbd Wenge-Hb-Ph with Star 3
This chess board is 11 3/4” square. Over all the board is 17 ¼” square. Each square is just under 1 1/2” and is made with 4 triangles. Two types of wood are in the chessboard. Three kinds of wood are on the whole board. The dark square is “Wenge” from West Africa; the light square is “Hackberry” from Missouri. “Purpleheart” from Central America is around the chessboard itself. The design on the corners is a variation of a “Rolling Star” quilt pattern. I use the same wood as is in the chessboard. There are 560 pieces in the over lay using three kinds of wood.
Also on the back, I signed it, listed the wood, and dated it. After the date the words “Foot Cut” let you know I made it on my foot powered table saw.
This gives a completely different look to a chess board. When not being used as a chess board, it is made to hang on the wall from one corner. They make a very beautiful wall hanging
