These look great!
OK, so I’m a total LJ rookie here so I don’t know if I am even allowed to ask questions here, but I have a couple of quick questions about your project. I was wanting to make a checkerboard for my bro-in-law but have not a clue how to do this… To me, I would think it is similar to a segmented cutting board.
If you don’t mind me asking, what are the sizes of the squares? What is the thickness of the boards? What did you finish it with?
Thanks for your reply.
