Build a Chess Board. Pt.1 – The Top

My adventure in building a chess board out of wood. This is part one of a very long 7-part series. Hey, it was my first video! —————- Woodworking For Mere Mortals. Fun woodworking…



  1. Hi Steve, This is the first time I've seen this video. I have to tell you that I retire next year and have been toying with doing some Youtube videos for fun and sharing. I am relatively new to Youtube, having really found it only 2 years ago. I began watching you, then Izzy, the Jay Bates, then April, and now have about 15 that I subscribe to. You have all taught me a lot.

    I have been intimidated by the "production" aspect of the videos. I researched and found a site that said "content is everything. Don't worry about production, get the idea or technique down and they will enjoy the video." Don't take this as a criticism, but this video exemplifies that notion. I love this video because of how real it feels and the fact that it is still wonderfully informative and entertaining. Don't get me wrong, I've seen some horrible woodworking videos and noted them as "what not to do" examples. You are a natural. I hope to meet you one day.

    I guess Youtube videos is a lot like writing. I never thought I could write, barely passed English in school, so when one of my stories kept getting longer and longer and more intricate, I let someone read it. They called it a manuscript, and I nearly fell off my chair. I now have a book that I've published and sold nearly 2,000 copies. LOL, I haven't really made any money, but I love talking to readers, and listening to them complain that I haven't done a sequel.

    You are an inspiration and an enabler. Stay true to your style and I wish you all of the success in the world.

  2. This is an extremely well done project, however I do have one critique. Speaking as a competitive chess player, don't make the surface of the board glossy! The high gloss finish is nice for a decorative piece that sits on a shelf, but when playing a game the reflection is distracting.

  3. I've been thinking about making a go board and a shogi board for a while now. Unlike a chess board, it doesn't feature alternating light and dark squares. Rather, it's a uniform straight-grained square piece of wood with a perfect rectangular grid on it. I had an idea to shallowly carve out the lines of the grid with a table saw using some sort of jig, and then spray paint the surface black and then sand the paint off the face of the board so the paint would be left as sort of an inlay in the groove. I know I don't have the skill to try to do a proper inlay with another type of wood. Time on a CNC machine would probably be the idea method to do this instead of a table saw, but I don't know anyone nearby who has one.
