Handmade Chessboard - Inlaid

This hardwood chess board is made from Maple and Walnut, and measures 20" square. The technique involves resawing solid wood to 1/8" thickness before making the board, so that wood movement doesn't break the board apart over time - beware of "solid" chessboards that aren't made this way - your corners won't hold up.

Other woods are available, and price varies. Suggested combinations include bloodwood and birdseye maple, purpleheart and yellowheart (pao amarello), kingwood and tulipwood, ebony and holly, or pick your own woods. Size can also be adjusted to fit the chess set you want to use, or order a chess set made from the same woods to match.

Price with walnut and maple as shown: $150.00

Wood Candy Dispenser - Mason Jar and Pine

Mason-Jar gumball machines come in many shapes and sizes. This one is made from solid pine, and hand-turned to set it apart from other designs. A hidden catch keeps the mechanism from coming out - just push it in and pull it out for another piece of candy - no coin required (your kids will like that part. In fact, this little project is one my kids don't want me to sell - they want it for themselves. Don't worry, though, I will make more...)

Choose your finish, or choose maple or walnut or other hardwoods if you want to make it fancy. A perfect gift for Mom's rustic decor, or dad's desk at work.
