This is the 8th checker board box James has made. Each one is quality workmanship.

The board top is made of 64 individual squares of Brazilian cherry and oak woods inlayed on birch plywood. The oak was edge sawn instead of the usual face cut; this gives the wood the look of bamboo. All four edges of each square were painstakingly beveled to give the board an elegant touch. The box underneath the board holds checkers (included) and chessmen (not included). The box is Brazilian cherry with a stained birch plywood bottom. The box has partitions for holding playing pieces. The corners of the box have triangles of oak wood. This is a decorative way to reinforce the box. The box is finished in clear satin polyurethane for durability. Brass hinges and a latch complete the box.

The checkers were purchased unfinished and finished to match the hardwoods. The finished box measures 15 1/2" x 15 1/2" x 3 1/4"deep. It weighs 5 lbs., resulting the high cost of shipping. As always, you are welcome to pick up or see any items, if you are in the north Alabama area. This game board would make a perfect gift for anyone who enjoys checkers or chess.

If traditional game boards are to your liking, check out all the board games James has. His woodcraft collection also includes clocks, doll beds and princess mirrors. My stained glass collection has night lights and picture frames. I also have crochet decorated flip flops and Mom has miniature dollhouse bedding and textiles. Please, see everything in Hobbymakers' shop.
