I wanted to make a chess board that wasn’t your typical large contrast board. Selected Leopard Wood and Jatoba for this, with a little Curly Maple thrown in for flair. Some may hate it because the contrast will affect their play, but I love it.

I love it too.
If someone blames the board for a loss, take it with a grain of salt.

Considering these are usually set in formal areas, I think the fine furniture look wins over the usual walnut and maple utility.

Great job on dealing with the expansion issues!

That is an oustanding chess board.
I would not mind playing on that board but you need some outstanding pieces to with that board.

For a second I thought, why is my chessboard online? Then I saw how shiny yours is… Well done.
