The make of a chess board is actually quite versatile as you can also use it as a compartment for medicine, mail, tools and whatnot depending on the size of the chessboard.
Step 1: MATERIALS
glue (for repair, if necessary)
rubber bands 4pcs
flathead screws 6pcs
hook screw 4 pcs
chess pieces (I chose 6 pieces in this case, but you can add more if preferred)
