The board by obiskus The board by obiskus
Close up of the chessboard.

Copper and stainless steel, 1mm sheet. Glued on a piece of MDF, copper trimmings on sides (doesn't show here..)
The steels surface was like this, it is called pigskin. I thought it fitted in the dragon-theme quite well and it gives more contrast to the board. 5 by 5 cm squares. 1 by 5 cm margins with engraved numbers 1 to 8 and letters A to H (can't be seen here, though). Total size 42 by 42 cm. Weight almost 5 kilos so it is no travel-version.. ;)

Better view on the margins here: [link]

I love the pigskin, but the tree's reflection in the board is pretty sweet too!

Looks really nice, I made a chessboard once, and it was the exact same size, but of wood.
