In this video I am building a chess board that could also be a cutting board if you felt like it. I made a couple chess boards a few years ago, and always wanted to do a new version and improve some aspects from my original design, so that is exactly what I did. There are a lot of interesting techniques in this one including, checkerboard veneers, mitered frames, cross lap joints, and more.

  1. Subbing just for that dumb chess pun at the beginning

  2. I like the board but i dont know about the pieces. I think they should be detailed and not squared. its hard to tell them off when you are playing so i prefer the detailed(normal) pieces

  3. I love how you said “Horse” not knight.

  4. You can improve it by adding extra rooks queens bishops and knights for promotion

  5. Excellent idea with squared pieces!
    Very nice contrast.. beautiful looking board.

    Chess, lad's!

  6. “The horse, the castle on the pointy one”😂😂😂😂😂😂

  7. Would love to have this chess set. There is just one thing tho, there is no weights in the bottom of the pieces and also there isn’t any padding on the pieces as well, other than that its perfect

  8. You owe me reimbursement for my hospital bills for the physical pain you caused by that pun

  9. I remember making a chess set out of paper in french because it was a free period and myself and a friend wanted to play chess. So our retarded asses spent longer making the board than playing.

  10. where can i buy this i would love to have one

  11. ngl i had no idea what he was doing half the time but i rlly enjoyed the vid

  12. I absolutely love this set. You have almost inspired me to make a set like this for myself. Stunning. Though because i play chess i feel obligated to point out that there is literally jo way the bit at the end was a checkmate. Losing, yeah. Should probably resign but it made me stop and look 😂

  13. this looks so modern and good this is what chess should look like

  14. great idea and design is awesome! very appreciate for sharing your video! Thank you very much!😍

  15. I love your channel but this is the ugliest chess set of all time.

  16. as a 1000 rated chess player i get offended from pointy one castle and horse

  17. Ah yes. Bishop: the pointy one

  18. ah yes, the horse, the castle, and the pointy one!

  19. Hol' up, did you just call the bishop?….. the pointy one!?

  20. Your all wrong it's knitgh rook and bishop

  21. As a certified chess player who has well over 1,000 Elo I can confirm that the pieces are called "Dad, Mom, Castle, The Pointy One, Horse, and the Baby"

  22. The title says the castle and the pointy one bruh it's a rook and a bishop😂😂😂

  23. ahh yes the horse the castle and the pointy one are my favourite

  24. not a fan of the geometric pieces but the chess board itself im in love

  25. This is chess has stolen by Rabbids

  26. This make me want to learn carpentry, I've done a lot of drawing in scale so maybe some type of drafting course would be nice.

  27. Chess players: Its named "Knight" not "Horse"!!!

  28. "The Babies, The Castle, The Horse, The Pointy One, The Mom, The Dad"

    Perfect representation of life

  29. i love how the board is so simple, if i could buy this, i would.
