Woodsmith Classic Chessboard Plan

SKU
WOODSMITH-CLASSIC-CHESSBOARD-GROUP

Outside of spending time in the shop, there’s nothing better than a game of chess with a friend or a couple rounds of checkers with the grandkids. This chessboard gives you the best of both worlds — a few interesting woodworking challenges, and a great excuse to play a few matches when you’re finished with the project. The unique feature of this chessboard is its go-anywhere design. The playing surface is actually a pair of lids that flip up to reveal a storage area for the game pieces. Magnetic catches hold the lids closed for travel. On the woodworking side, we'll show you how to create the veneered game board and the eye-catching box joints. Game on.

We offer the Woodsmith Classic Chessboard plan as a downloadable PDF or a printed format that we ship to you.
