Here be a few photographs on a border design for one of the chess boards.
This board is NSW Rosewood and Camphor Laurel
The border was made by cutting triangles of NSW Rosewood and Silver Ash and laminating them between strips of Camphor Laurel and Queensland Maple..alternating the colors..
Then it was a matter of making a lip in some Rosewood and glueing the Triangular feature to the solid rosewood and mitre cutting the corners… this is actually harder than you might think…
I forgot to make sure that the triangles did not move too much thereby making the lengths different.
You will see in the following photo that the white triangles do not quite line up… oh well something new I have learned to be aware of..
I am thinking of adding yet another layer of Camphor on the outside of the frame..
