Hi, I’m a bit of a novice in the woodworking world, I did take a general wood working course back in high school which included cutting, lathe work, gluing, easy furniture making like a wood box/chest thing, and a few other topics, but that was a few year ago. I have questions in 2 areas regarding a project.
This year my Brother and I wanted to make a chess board for our father and I planned to use 2 kinds of wood, cut into block strips (so it would basically be made like a shortgrain butcher block) and an epoxy or wood glue to bond them together. then clamp over night or 24 hours. then i would cut it into strips in the other direction and turn the pieces on end to the short grain side is up and then just turn every other strip around so the colors alternate then re-glue, wait 24 hours then sand and finish.
2)What wood to use
