Hi there all, this does seem like a nice group of online woodworkers! I would like to know what all I need to start veneering chessboards, I was going to place an order tomorrow and thoguh’t you all might have some do’s and dont’s on this. I’m going to go the cold pressed glue method with lots of weight as my boards are a little too big to fit without blowing out the seams of a vacuum bag. I have sandpaper and finishing products, I just need to know which tools would be the easiest to use for this application thx.

Yes Chessman. My blog that Debbie shows are a good starting point.

I’ve not yet put that chess surface on a board yet.

But here is a table that I made for my son.
