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.

Your board should have AT LEAST 2 1/8″ squares for this set, though, or it will appear crowded. For 2″ squares, consider a 3 3/4″ King, you won’t notice the difference in play but it will fit better on the board.

You can get creative here and alternate the color for each side of the board cherry, maple cherry maple… I decided to go with the maple on all sides. These are glued on each side and mitered with one another at the corners.

Perfect! For the prize and size, it was exactly what I wanted. The entire set is solid wood, both the board and pieces. I am teaching my 3 year old how to play, so I wanted something durable, and this works great. It is nothing fancy, but I wasn’t looking for fancy, just basic plain pieces for teaching.

This chess set is not what I expected, but turned out that my son loved it. I thought it would be bigger. To my surprise, the pieces are magnetic (guess I didn’t read closely). I love that it holds the pieces underneath. My son was very satisfied. I just wish the pieces were bigger.
The fact is that many of our customers prefer their sets for display rather than to be use in games. Like a fine musical instrument, a vintage luxury automobile, or a first edition classic book, the luxury chess set is to be admired. Plenty of Regency Chess sets have been purchased by individuals who only have a rudimentary understanding of the game, if any at all. In fact, these are our typical customer for luxury sets – those who wish to see the set as a design accessory or a conversation piece. When you see our finely crafted pieces of fine hardwoods it is quite simple to understand why they are strictly on display. In particular, the expertise with which the knights are designed, hand carved, and finished make them the hallmark pieces in the set. As you can see, we also sell a larger version of the knights to be used as fine paperweights – that look especially classy on a fine wooden executive desk. Whether it be with a fine glass of port, your favourite cigar, or in the company of a connoisseur, we implore you to play a game or two on these luxurious heirloom sets – as life is simply too short to deny oneself such a luxury!

I have a question. Between steps 7 and 8, did you run the endges through a jointer or otherwise true them up? Despite my best efforts, the edges after the second glue up are not perfect and I don’t think a border will glue on right. I’m wondering how running the checkerboard wood through the jointer would work, since the grains alternate.
