The Chinese Checkers side. If you wanted to know there are 121 holes drilled in the face of it. I used the veneer to cover the the chess side of the board. I thought it was too busy without the veneer.
This is my first try at making a game board. The lady that asked me to make a chinese checker board for her husband, gave me the creative freedom to do what I wanted. This was the final product. I am very excited how it came out. This was my first attempt at a double-double box joint and my second attempt at veneering. The chess board and sides are made from walnut and maple. The stars on the chinese side are maple, cherry, oak, and a walnut center. The veneer was given to me and I have no idea what it is. It has the color of cherry and alder. It has the look of tiger maple, but I am unlcear of the species of wood. It his finished with 6 coats of hand rubbed polyurethane with sanding between every other coat. I am going to enter it in my local fair tomorrow.
The lid flips to play either chinese checkers or chess.
This was my second attempt at a double-double box joint. The first attempt ended up in the scrap pile.
