Handcrafted Chinese Chess Board

My father-in-law loves to play chinese chess, so I decided to design and build a portable chess board with slide-out drawer for his playing pieces and a handle to carry it folded up like a suitcase. It's made out of lightweight basswood. I designed the project in Rhino 3D, my favorite CAD program, laser cut and etched the board on my laser cutter, and custom milled all the pieces on my new miniature power tools. It was a very fun project that took me several weeks to complete.
