I love chess boards, and this is a great one.

Excellent work on the inlay.

That’s nice. Where do you buy banding like that?

Very nice work! Playing on a board like that would make me think I’m a better player than I am.

That is just awesome. Did you build that from plans or just off the top of your head? I would love to make a chess board as a gift to my father because we used to always play chess. For his 50th my mom, and I bought him a nice chess set that came with the board, but I would love to make him the board at least. I can then start working on my woodcarving and try to whittle the pieces (a second gift down the road :))
