I started out designing a cutting board that expanded into this chess board with case. I used maple and walnut (mostly left over from previous projects) and practiced key post joinery with an Incra dovetail/box joint jig I bught at Rockler. The hinges and clasp are from Rockler as well. I also got a lot of advise from the folk at my local Rockler Store.
"Every time I have been in a Rockler store around the country I have left feeling that I received wonderful service and most always had exactly what I needed in stock at a fair to great price. the only complaint, if it can be called that, is that I have to drive over 45 minutes to reach the nearest Rockler store. My wife probably appreciates that distance, as I am certain that if one was as close as I wished it to be, we would have very little left in our checkbook!" -
