'Pickle' Chess Cabinet, Acacia, Maple & Oak
This gem was a pleasure to work on. It reminds me of the chess sets often set up in country stores throughout New England, laid out and waiting on a convenient pickle barrel. Therefore, I named her 'Pickle.'
Sporting a porcelain and brass knob on the front drawer, the cabinet is finished with a golden pecan stain on the playing surface and oak trim, with a dark mahogany stain on the Malaysian acacia sides. The drawer, fitted with a hidden magnetic latch for secure transportation, is finger-jointed for strength and a strong cross-grain appearance. A sturdy, water-proof spar urethane finish protects the cabinet and surface from dings and dents.
The chess cabinet measures 9.5"x9.5"x3.5", and is a solid build with heirloom quality being the goal. The body is bevel cut, with the drawer large enough to hold multiple chess piece collections. For this set, I would recommended a king size of 2.5". The set looks gorgeous with a standard Taunton design set.
