This game board is solid wood. There are 209 pieces from 8 species. The Chess / Checker side is made using Tennessee Aromatic Cedar, Lithuanian Pine, and Brazilian Rosewood. The Backgammon side is made from German Spruce, Antique Heart Redwood, Douglas Fir, Macacauba. The outer banding of the board id Tulip Wood (Popular).
The project was a bit of a challenge. The squares were pretty much straight forward, the triangular pieces were a little complicated to make safely. I made a special jig to cut the small pieces and took a lot of patience to make it fit together.
