Arkansas Open This Weekend

Tomorrow is the annual Arkansas Open chess tournament in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  I will be finally updating this blog with some chess content.  While we wait, here are some pictures of my finished chess boards since I never posted any!

Progress Part 3!

Thrilled with the red one.  There are a couple of minor paint bleeds, but they are pretty easily fixable.  I've already fixed one and after the paint dries, I will fix the other one.  Then onto the protective coating of polycrilic.

Progress Pics Part 2

Finished up the white squares portion of the paint job on the green and the red boards.  No time to do too much since I was leaving town to visit family and barely got this done.  Threw some pieces on the boards and didn't notice until too late that I had both(!!) boards oriented incorrectly.  No time to fix it so just snapped the pics and then had to run.  Literally barely got these taken at all so don't be too hard on me for being an idiot and setting them up wrong.

Really happy with these so far.  The black borders should improve them a lot, too.

The green board (2.25" squares) will have a thicker black border I think.

If the orientation really bugs you, here is a mirror image!
