so here is the finished project. i used both walnut and birch to have some contrast in them. a special thanks to clieb91 for the link for an easier way to do it. since it was my first try, there were a few mistakes in it, but i think i managed to correct all i could and it turned out decently.

This is a gorgeous chessboard. The corners add visual interest to the project.

Great board! I need to do another one…I’ve done two and the second was better than the first, but still not as nice as this one.
