    Steve, thank you. Just thank you so much. Wonderful job and I made an incredible board with your help. Now I'm working on a paduak, maple and wedge version. So grateful for you showing me how to take it on. All the best to you!

    Steve.  I have a second business making leather goods.  We use contact cement all the time to hold leather to leather.  You made a good choice.  In fact, I use DAP Weldwood.  Again, perfect choice.

    This isn't a "how to make a chessboard with caveman tools" video, this is a "how to make a chessboard" video.

    I'm wanting to make my own chess set as well, but am very very limited on tools. Could you offer any words of wisdom. I realize it's hard to help out if you don't know what tools I have and don't have. I don't even own a table saw. I'd have to borrow.

    This is more of a tutorial on how to use each and every tool on earth for any thing you can think about, if you have unlimited money for gear. Comn iv seen people making better uqlity chessboards with a hand saw and sandpaper

    If you glue a rare earth magnet in your stop block, and another in the back of the drawer you have a pretty decent "latch" to keep the drawers in place.

    Steve, I'm very serious about wanting to buy a replica of what you've made. I'm sure you've had many people asking. How much would interest you?

    to use CONTACT glue right, apply it on both pieces, let it dry, aline it and rub it on ^^ dont do it the way shown in this video, wont last that long ^^

    That's an exquisite chess board you've made — except for those drawer pulls. They don't match the quality and style of the rest of the work, I feel.

    Which would be useful especially when you pick the board up to move it around, would be if at the stop blocks put magnets, so it holds the drawer in place and so it won't fall out.

    at 4:53 those are some ice horses you got there

  18. @jazzlad Yeah, I did tape it in. You're right…I never thought about the tape rotting away!

    Just occurred to me, did you say tape to attach the penny? I love the idea of embedding an 'easter egg' but the tape would likely degrade over a couple decades … might this cause a rattle? That might create enough curiosity to attempt to dismantle it 🙂 – Love all your videos, BTW!

    You should come-up with plans for this chess-board – You can make a lot of money.
    There's a lot of people out there who would to make your chess-board project…..

  22. Yeah. I use Titebond wood glue for everything. It's actually stronger than the wood itself.

    I love the idea of using the penny. Great video.

  25. Sorry, this was all made up as went along with a few crude drawings.
