Introduction: Interlocking Chess Board

Picture of Interlocking Chess Board

This is an interlocking chess board I recently made.  My goal was to make the board without any glue and only 8 screws (to hold the frame together).  Altogether, the board is made by fitting 32 pieces together.  Instructions for making the pieces may be found here:

This photo instructable shows you how to put the pieces together in a step-by-step fashion.  Detailed instructions are included in each photo as tags.  Also, if you click through them really fast, it's almost like a movie!  Enjoy!
