To give your chessboard a finished look, add a 2″ border around the outside. Rip a few strips of either your light or dark stock and miter them to fit around the board. Then drill a few dowel holes to help you keep the border aligned when you attach it to the chessboard. Glue the border strips in place and sand the completed project to #220-grit.

Veneer chessboards use much less of the deluxe hardwood in their construction and this reliable construction method is much more consistent, so wastage and defects tend to be a lot less making the chessboards less expensive. These chessboards have sharp corners from all edges with matte finish on the top surface of it, hence matte surface will protect the chessboard from finger smudges & scratches.
I have a very nice 3.5″ wood set from TheChessStore, and I can vouch for their high quality. The set you are looking at from eBay should be a very nice quality set that I think you would be very pleased with.
I’m really not one to draw up and go by plans. I really don’t even like following plans. That being said, I do sketch ideas and make notes to figure out my rough needs for a project. This does have draw-backs at times, but I’m still able to “wing-it” with most projects.

Veneer boards are common, with more designs and lower cost, they range in quality and most look great. The majority are made with a high fiber core overlaid with a thin wood veneer. If you’re the type that wants solid wood construction, these might not be for you.

P.C. from LA writes, “I knew I had to buy your set of chessmen. They are fantastic. The case is gorgeous. And even the chess board is beautiful, despite it being one of your least expensive chess boards.”
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.

Just an update guys – I have had a bad experience with TheChessStore so far! The set arrived, and although the build quality is excellent (weights, felting, finishing), the set looks nothing like the eBay auction above I came to find out from TheChessStore that they switched manufacturers and that is the reason for the different look. I am waiting for a replacement set that supposedly closer matches the one I paid for.
Th century. While this was sold to me as being an Italian chess set, it looks French to me. That being said, the knights are a little different than typical French knights in that they are nicer with …

The set I received is far different. Its the “Exclusive Staunton 4″ King Set” (listed way above) but the bishop looks nothing like that. The head is waay fatter, and thicker. Also, the pieces are generally “fatter” and fuller in stature. The knights almost look laughable. Below is a photo I found on their site of the exact one (minus color choice) I received with the fatter, weird looking pieces. Compare this to the original ebay auction link I posted above.
