Or, perhaps it’s I never seem to make time to have some.
In any event, I have nearly completed my flurry of making anchored by last week’s staycation. The fruits of those labors will be showing up here over the next few days. Let’s start with 6 chess boards.
All are different, of course.
Most have the board sitting a bit proud of the frame … meaning that the board is perhaps 1/8″ taller than the frame it sits on. Why? Because I like them that way. Chess boards should be proud, methinks.
Most of the frames have mitered corners and are glued in place, but I did a couple that have contrasting frames that are screwed into place. That really messed with Mrs M, who didn’t understand why I was suddenly using fasteners, AKA stainless steel screws, on my work. She thought I only used glue.
The whole art thing just zoomed right over her head.
Oh, the plight of the artist, so often misunderstood by those around him….
But back to the question. THE question. “Do you make chess boards?”
Now you know the answer, and as long as these last, my only answer will be to point.
