Bespoke Chessboard Humidor.

vanderburgh chessboard humidor THThis was a fun and interesting project.  First of all, the client wanted to integrate the chessboard as a permanent feature.  I thought that it might be nice to have the option to remove the board in case it wanted to be used seperately on a table.

All seemed fine, until we received the chessboard itself.  It was a cherished piece that was passed down for many years.  The years had definitely taken its toll on it as it was badly warped in on many planes.  Working with warped wood is often difficult, so we figured out a unique way to install the lid, while still being made removable.

Enjoy the photos!
