This chessboard is made of solid walnut and maple and finished with Danish oil. No veneers were used to make this chess board. The square are made of 1/2 inch pieces and are left visible underneath as to show the solid construction. The border is made using a layering process then routed to give a decorative profile and separate the colors.

The chessboard pictured is 13 7/8 square and 1 inch tall. The individual squares are 1 9/16 square.

It’s a wonderful chessboard and you did a fine job on it.
