This is a small chess table for keen players. The playing surface is inlaid maple and rosewood. The drawer is shared through both sides and the inside is felt lined. The primary wood is walnut with its pores filled the surfaces oiled and polished with shellac. The work surface has an additional coat of urathane to protect it from water and alcohol. The legs are turned using two centers and faired with edge tools before sanding. They are installed at a slight angle for a splayed effect and fastened to a laminated oval apron with mortice and tenon joints.
