Gather your materials; Wood, wood glue, sandpaper, paint and an Ultra-Saw or Saw-Max.
Begin by cutting the wood into 8 strips, all 2 inches wide, using your Ultra-Saw or Saw-Max. Paint 4 black and 4 white.
Carefully edge-glue them together, keeping the ends aligned. When the glue has dried, true up one end by crosscutting the assembled panel on your table.
Next, recut the panel into eight 2″-wide strips.
Now cut the piece of wood in 4 strips to create the frame.
Cut the base to the same proportion of the frame.
Glue all of the pieces in place. Measure where the strip will go and then cover that section of the board in glue, gluing and then placing one row at a time. Remember to alternate the square colors.
Done! You're now ready to add the chess pieces you can create using your Dremel Idea Builder.
