Here it is all finished..
Yes, there were a few correct answers and many fine guesses… thanks for all those who commented on the blog…Third pic is underneath.. to show that the grid is inlaid not all the way through..
Nearly forgot… this is my version of a Shogi Board… aka Japanese chess..

I read about SHOGI in the net and have some idea, now. Are you going to make the pieces as well?
The board is perfect and that what the Japanies looking for, perfectness. Hope you get the right price.
Thanks for sharing and educating us.

cool, Larry… going for the Japanese market now? are the “columns” inlay half lapped or just short pieces?
it amazes me that you have such complete disregard to grain direction. this kind of board would tear itself to pieces here over a year.
