Here are my models with the wood textures.
Very nice board/box you have made for the set.
One bit looks odd to the eye, and that is how the wood texture continues as though all one piece of wood from the board edge to the black squares. It may look better to make the black squares material different, even if only a different orientation, and/or scale of the same wood.
I have a chess board made of wood that has this kind of look, I actually wanted the wood texture to continue, I have changed it a lot since though, you will probably see it in discussions of other lectures
I really love it !
Good idea !!
Good work !
