The Comment You're Replying To

The board was made by laying it out in Autocad, printing it out and
spray-mounting the prints to heavy cardboard.  A coat of acrylic spray
was
applied to protect the printing.  The cells are 2' across the flats.

Since my printer handles up to 11' x 17' paper, it was necessary to
piece it together in five parts ( the seams are visible in the photo, but
not so noticeable as to interfere with play).  The benefit of this is the
board is easily portable; the parts stack up and fit in a large envelope.

The pieces are tournament-standard plastic chessmen ordered from Nf3.com
(not sure if they're still in business).  They had a good deal a few
years back and I bought a few sets for about $7 US apiece.

Thank you for your kind comments!
