I call this my “Medium size Walnut” chess table. This table stands 30” tall and is 32” wide. Each square is 2 ½”, the whole board is just over 20”. There are over 3200 pieces on the entire table. The pieces are used over the edge and onto the pedestal and feet of the table. Each square is made using 4 diamonds and 6 triangles. It gives a chess or checker board a completely different look. It has two drawers, one on each side. The drawers have magnetic catches on the back of them, so they don’t slide out on their own. I use wood dowels to help hold the drawers together. The table is finished in its natural color with 6 or 8 coats of varnish. After the varnish hardens for at least a month, I level it and buff it to a high shine. The pieces are a bit over 3/16" thick, glued onto a Baltic Birch base, so they hold up much better than a thin veneer.

The type of wood is listed on the bottom of the table. The dark square has “Lacewood” from Australia in the middle and “Bubinga” from Africa on the outside. The light square has “Oak” in the middle and “Hackberry” on the outside both from Missouri. And then “Hackberry” and “Walnut” from Missouri are used on the rest of the table.

The pieces in each square are placed so that two diamonds are on opposite corners. Then when you look at those corners where 4 squares meet a star is formed at that corner all over the table. You can see it easiest on the Chess Board, itself, here on the “Close-up” picture.

I made this table in 2000 and got it finished in 2001. It is medium table number 7. On the bottom I signed it, listed the wood, dated it and put the number of the table. As with everything I make I can find flaws in each item, be it box or table. It’s not perfect but you’ll look a long time to find a prettier table.

I lined the bottom of the drawers with black velveteen.

Go to my ”Shop Polices” and “Profile” page to see my return policy and other information on how I make these. To see other tables I’ve made, click on “Tables” or whatever gets your interest under “Sections in this shop”. The “Home” page itself can be rather confusing with everything mixed up. The “Sections in this shop” lets me show you all like items together as a unit.

The Medium Chess Table will be shipped, with pedestal and feet disassembled, all in a wooden box. Directions will be included for assembling.

Payment can be made using Pay Pal for immediate shipment, money order or check. Checks will have to clear before shipment is made. Missouri residents, include 5.225% sales tax. Shipping and Handling will be around $300.00 more or less, in the Continental United States or you can pick it up. That can all be decided when you buy it.
