If you have to cut a lot of the edge off to make it all even, it will look odd. So in that case, I would do the opposing side of the board the same size. You could then designate the start areas on the board saving the work you have put into it already.
You can finish this project any way you like, but a blend of equal parts oil, varnish and mineral spirits will give it a nice hand-rubbed look. You can also use a bamboo veneer to make it pop even more! Wipe a liberal amount of finish on the wood and spread it around evenly. Let the finish sit for about 15 minutes and then wipe it off. Don’t leave any wet finish on the wood. You might want to apply two or three coats. Let each coat dry several hours and buff the last one with #0000 steel wool for a satin sheen.

For the money the board is ok. It’s a four, maybe a three-star product. The box proudly declares that the item inside is a wooden chess board. That’s a bit of a stretch. It’s most likely particle board with veneer. And the product description claims that it is an inlaid wood board and, if it is, it manages to nearly pass for a high-resolution photo-finish.
