This is a beautiful board that, I am sure, your father-in-law will love. You chose a nice combination of woods for the board as well.

Beautiful! Love the way you did each tile kind of separate, instead of tight like the cutting boards. Nice wood selection, great design, Super!

Well done Mike. I have no doubt he’ll be proud to ‘push wood’ across that board.

Love the look, I like the separate square look. I have been wanting to do one for my nice chess set I have, I think it gonna be somewhat of a copy of yours. Keep up the great work
