This chess set is created out of maple and walnut woods to create the “whites” and “blacks”. Its got small magnets on the inside corners to hold the board tightly closed when its folded in half. The pieces all fit snuggly inside and is practically a puzzle in its own right to put away!
I created this entertainment stand to hold our living room electronics, DVDs, and PlayStation games. I’d previously made a bookshelf (I’ll have to add a picture soon) and my wife wanted it to coordinate.
Since the doors needed to slide past each other I created the hardware using skateboard wheel bearings and a narrow track. And to brace the bottom of the doors and keep things sliding evenly I added bearings from a router bit to hold the doors plumb.
This is the second nightstand in a set that I made.
I carved the design out with chisels.
One of the doors pulls open like a door should. The other pulls out like a drawer.
It was a commissioned piece because I sold the first one at an art show. The buyer liked it so much that they asked for a second one so they could be mounted on either sides of their bed.
