This was a wedding gift for a friend. Had it run through a panel sander after final glue up to ensure flatness. Finished with wipe on poly.

Thanks for any constructive criticism.

Thanks. The squares are 1.75” and the entire board is about 16×16.

I’ve always found the 2.25” tournament sized boards to be annoying large for casual play, but that’s just my opinion.

It looks great, like the size and the wood colors really pop with the finish. It’s a great gift for a friend. Great job!

You did a fine job on this chessboard. It’s beautiful.
