    Now that was not what I was expecting. Nice! Hand-carved chess men coming next?
    Again, ditto! That's really clever!

    Let's see. 1-1/4" screws for the pawns (galv and bronze), hex nuts for the rooks, lag screws for the knights, carriage bolts for the bishops... No cheating and using electrolysis to overcome your opponant!

    I think I’ve got the other puzzle pieces for the table top all cut out (minus the mahogany trim).

    It it should go together alright.

    It’s not the materials, it’s getting 16 pawns plus four each of the other pieces to match each other.

    I was thinking more like ravens for rooks, wolves for knights, salmon for bishops, and bears for king and queen. Then maybe trees for pawns.

    I’ve already had a bit of practice with ravens and wolves.

    I decided the board needed a little mahogany trim so that the yellow cedar squares on the edge of the field don’t get lost in the larger yellow cedar table.

    All trimmed up up with the table saw and ready for glue up with the rest of the top.

    And now I’m waiting for glue to dry.

    Thanks Martin. A good sanding, some mahogany edging, and varnish and I think it will come up real nice.

    Marking the outer corners.

    And sanding out the top.

    It’s starting to look pretty table like.

    Sadly, I’m not that clever. No backgammon or hidden gadget legs, just a dinette table that folds down into a bunk.

    The only thing I can tell you for sure about my drafting set is that it was my grandfather’s and that it is old, probably from the late 1920s. I still use it quite a bit surprisingly enough.

    Continuing on the table front, it’s time to trim it out. Starting with the corners. Each corner has a 1/16th inch thick mahogany veneer wrapped around it and glued in place.

    C75B852F-C550-4C7A-96EB-F43D19F30E39.jpg

    Then I cut some rail for the three sides.

    05C4E72D-AD15-47FF-9196-290141763319.jpg

    With the rails cut to length and the edges rounded over, I placed them on the edge of the table so I could mark and trim the corner veneers.

    Here we are, all glued up and with the first coat of varnish on it.

    That is a nice set. The lining pen at the back is an unusual design.
    The set I bought in the '60s got a tad scruffy so I treated myself to these:

    Love the table, what's your take on wood movement, think it will split at the breadboard end? Something I've had a problem with.

    Your table is a great addition Jim. As you pointed out that will help to alieve a lot of boredom.

    I’m not too worried about the wood moving. The wood is well seasoned and climatized for the cabin and will be sealed up well which will slow down any moisture changes. But I guess I’ll find out.

    Jim, I don’t feel so bad about my messy shed now - #2574. You only made the table in the hope that no-one would notice but I got my eye on you.

    On on a serious note , does the dynel/painted decking “feel” grippy cos I’m thinking of making the cabin sole from it?

    I admit it, keeping things picked up and organized is not one of my strengths.

    The dynel laid on the deck is pretty grippy. I think it will provide good traction without doing anything else to it.

    I need a new tray for against the hull, that the table will attach to. The old one has reached the end of its useful life and would look pretty shabby against the new table.

    10271D09-AA0E-472A-946E-FF792A7D0DC7.jpg

    Here’s the new one roughed out.

    304130B7-395F-403D-984A-5D91BB27DFE3.jpg

    Lapped corners.

    E98B7695-8DEB-4B14-AA25-127076208431.jpg

    And making sure it actually fits.

    I better get some varnish it.
