I really did make 40 chessboards. Here are pictures of five of them.This red and gold number was the first one I really liked. It's the one my son took away with him the first time I made them. The squares are 2-1/2", a bit larger than standard.

This one is one I made for myself. I like the play of the white on the black squares, and the black on the white squares. If you click the picture to enlarge it, you can see that I also stenciled letters and numbers on the inner border, identifying the squares. This makes it easier to describe a Chess move (like Nxf2, for example.) The squares on this Chessboard are "standard" size, about 2-1/4"

I made this pink and black one for my niece, and made a little bag for the pieces. This one and the next one have squares that are 2".

This jungle themed one is my nephew's.

This is another one I made for myself.

You can click the photos to enlarge them. I'll post some how-to pictures soon.
