This is the first chess board I ever built. Before building this I had a few picture frames under my belt and that was about it. I did not want to spend a lot of money on this in case I made a fatal mistake. So I built it all out of scrap lumber. It is primarily oak. But there is mahogany and walnut trim in the case. I am not sure what type of wood the dark squares are, but they serve their purpose. There really is no style that I followed, I just went with it to prove to myself that I could build it. With all projects, this one taught me things not to do ever again and things to improve upon for the future.
