I have been wondering for sometime on what style of chess board I would like to make. I stumbled on Mike M
( Would u make it ) videos and I thought I Would make it – with some features and just a few adjustments. Mine is close to 2” squares and I decided to trim the edge of the frame with my router – this would have been easier on my nerves before assembly.

Dimensionally it is almost 21” corner to corner with the inside board measuring 16”.

Walnut and maple were used with some Padauk in the frame for accent.
Finish is lacquer

I was lucky to find some nice wood filled chess pieces which blend in with the board.
