chess table --- finished

My chess table is done!  Yay!

I didn't outline the board in black after all --- I decided I liked it best unbounded.
Also decided to paint the notation letters and numbers with the same green as the dark squares instead of using black marker.

I gave it 3 coats of polyurethane, and had to keep it outside in the porch for a couple of days til the smell abated.

It's not perfect, but I like how it turned out.  And now I am ready to play some chess!

My Isle of Lewis chessmen.  Aren't they cool?
