Chess piece storage

Chess piece storage With my recent chess board thought it may be nice to have a box to store the pieces. Similar wood but tried to capture the wood features also – I had some nice curly maple and some figured walnut . The inner sections was done with some 1/8 walnut that was 2 wide to form the separation for all the pieces.The top marking was done slowly with a 1 /8 bit and back filled with some black timbermate filler covered with CA sealant.Hopefully will keep the chess pieces from running away ,,,,
