Chess board ....mahogany and cherry veneer with purple heart inlayed alignment keys.
A friend wanted a compact game table with a lighter side for her parlor. This piece worked well with its mahogany bellbottom legs and contrasting sycamore top with stylized inlayed accents. The drop-in game board is reversible with veneered patterns for common board games. The top is a simple half-lap layout with wide aprons to profile the handsome figuring of qs sycamore and is finished with semi-gloss poly.
Four simple drawers for game pieces and card storage.
