wow what a fantastic piece of craftmaship.How long did the whole thing take I hope whoever it was made for fully appreciates each and every piece. ours green with envy UK MEAGER
WOW...very impressive. I especially like the visual effect of the walnut-maple in the table halves. The chess pieces intrigue me, and the inlays look great. I did a chess table a few months ago, and seeing your table makes me want to do another one. I love playing chess too. Nice work Dennis.
When I made my chess table I thought it was impressive, atleast for me it was impressive. Then I saw another chess table made from another member and I admitted that his is much better than mine. But now that I saw yours...holy friggin @#$! talk about raising the bar my friend. I have a long way to go, but very very nice work. Truly a masterpiece.
WOW, this is truly a master center piece in any room. I admire your choice of woods, your design and mostly your skills in being able to create not just one set but three sets. I give you a 10.
Truly amazing, you are an inspiration.
Great job Dennis. Nice details and love the chair, table combination. Great set up for a game room. That's nice enough for a dining room. Just curious, how long this project took to complete?
All of your pieces are amazing. The inlay work and carving are incrediable.
Yes I do play, my father taught me how when I was younger and the set I made was a christmas gift for him this year.
Thank you for the complements Haldeman. It helps that I love to play chess. Are you a chess player yourself?
Wow. I know it says you made this ten years ago but I'm seeing this table for the first time today and let me say it is some amazing work of art my friend. Your work inspires me to keep on trying, and yet at the same time humbles me. Great job. Looks perfect.
