Icarus

Nice work tank.  I appreciate your craftsmanship.  The chess pieces are particularly imaginative and well done.

Do as Hermes suggests.

That falls into the heirloom category. You should engrave the date of completion and your name on the bottom of the board.

That's a good idea. I bought a wood burner stencil and iron and I haven't used it yet.

All assembled and sanded to 120g


Cut into two pieces and adding the hinges


No linseed oil but with the three trial pieces I made


Partially finished so you can see the difference the linseed oil makes

I thought so too. That's what started me off on the triangles/hexagons.

Indeed. I'm betting on Baltic birch. I use a lot of it for casework because it doesn't turn into a tortilla shape after cutting, like most other type of plywood. It looks like that (light/dark stripes) when finished with a clear coat.

It looks like birch but it was an 8" off cut that I was playing with. :)

Pity you didn't use cedar wood. Then it would have been an aromatic ring box.
