How checkerboards are harvested

I thought I would share a project I call “Where Checkerboards Come From” No laser use yet but I will use it to make checkers. I made it with standard woodworking tools and X-Carve CNC.

I’m making it to give away at a family white elephant gift exchange where the guests can choose a random wrapped present or steal one that someone else already opened. I hope it’s a popular one and not the one that someone gets stuck with in the end. :slight_smile:

I absolutely can’t see someone thinking that they were stuck with this.

Gorgeous, and cool to make a nonstandard shaped board. Whoever ends up with it will be lucky.

You definitely won’t be stuck with it. Looks great.

Love it! (Be sure to watch for fights over the steals…sometimes that game can get rough after a couple of eggnogs.) :smile:

You are going to have to limit the number of steals. Anyone who doesn’t want that is not in their right mind.

Probably easier with the Shaper Origin. (I still have given up on one yet. :slight_smile: )

Wow!! Someone will be pretty happy! Love it!
