I made this chess table in 2007 with cocobolo, maple and cherry. The frame is cherry with 1/8" thick maple and cocobolo veneer. The pulls and beading are cocobolo. The table has two drawers and two sliding supports for chess pieces. Finish is oil and shellac.

By the way... I notice the car so i am guessing you made it in your garage- REAL woodworkers put their families in the garage and their pieces in the bedrooms!
