About us

I started woodworking 20 something years ago. I made things for myself mostly. First I built a shop, then some cabinets and other things I needed. For christmas I made 4 Chess Boards, one for each of my children along with 4 sets of pieces. It was a fun and challenging hobby. Some friends saw my cabinets and other work and wanted some of these items for themselves.

Like many others, I'm sure, my hobby got out of hand and eventually I went from a computer tech that did some wood work to a woodworker with a computer tech hobby. I found that making Chess Boards was challenging, interesting and that they are easy to ship. I have dreamed from childhood of a business I can run from a small cottage in the woods and now I have it in upstate NY on Sweet Hill. SweetHillWood.com

If you're looking for the Cutting Boards I used to have on this site you can now find them at upstate-ny-cuttingboards.com. Thank you so much for your interest and support and please feel free to contact me with any questions or requests you may have.

I have been making chess boards for about 20 years. Each year I think they get a little better. So here I am selling these online now for you. I hope you like yours.
