22”x22”, maple, Peruvian walnut, and cherry.
Those are not the right chess pieces, just some I had, chess pieces need to be larger.

This will make a wonderful Christmas gift and you’ve done a fine job on it.

I am a chess lover and this is a great board. Definitely needs some custom made pieces. Is that a drawer? Would be nice to see pictures of that pulled out too.

It’s a very balanced and elegant looking set. The contrasts and proportions are spot on. Favorited.
