These boards are done in maple, walnut, and cherry. Found a good write up on how to do these.

They are pretty slick to make, and in making one, you end up with two. One to keep, one to give away. The only thing I could add is start with fairly thick boards, if possible.

I’ve made those before, but never thought of curving the outside edges.

That is so cool. Nice job!

Those look great. Is that a think strip of Cherry between every “checker board”? If so, how did you cut the strip? Did you “joint” it and how did you overcome the “spring action?

Reason I ask is I tried making one of these ahile ago, but the spring action of the strip simply turned my board into a game of 52-card pickup before everything was clamped completely.

Awesome work!!!
