The Wood Shoppe #9  Chessboards:  How Square is Square?

In case you’ve ever wondered how chess boards come together so beautifully with the tips of the squares touching off perfectly, know that the essential element is squareness.   In the instance of solid hardwood chess boards, we’re talking about squareness in three planes that define each of the squares.

Summerville-New England Solid Hardwood Chess Boards are brought into a squareness compliance to within 26 arc seconds in the x-y planes, and to within 5 arc minutes on the z plane.

That’s pretty close.
