This end table with a shelf is made of old pine. The table has been photographed as used to hold a chess set that President Carter made in 1993. You can see the staining where the wood color has faded where the chess board once sat atop the table. The hand-carved chess set is now owned by a Saudi prince, with the set including a box designed to hold each piece that was lined in velvet (see: The Craftsmanship of Jimmy Carter by Jimmy Carter in 2018 for additional details and an image of the set with this table). Today, this small table remains in the Carter home in Plains, Georgia, and was documented using structured light scanning, imaging, and photogrammetry. This furniture piece was selected for 3D documentation by the USF DHHC with input and collaboration with the Carter family, the National Park Service, and the Friends of Jimmy Carter National Historical Park.
