Desk unit with inlaid chess table

Robb Stewart of Melrose, MA sits at his newly installed home office desk, complete with inlaid chessboard.

Robb knows chess. He plays in tournaments, teaches school children and is a Director of the Massachusetts Chess Association.

He asked that the board be sized to his Staunton-style chess set. He also wanted a bookcase, two-drawer file cabinet, wire chases for computer and phone wires and a light maple top.

The chess board is maple and walnut, edged with a specially made banding made from beautiful, endgrain walnut and maple.

Many O’Doherty Moore, LLC projects have unique features that customers can’t find elsewhere. It was a pleasure to work with Robb to help bring his idea of a chess desk to reality.
