Hi,

I've created a chess computer board. Because I can. There's room for improvement :-)

Nice.
Seems you used standard led with black mounting clips.

Maybe it would have looked better without the clips,or clips in the color of the board square*.
Maybe even better with smd leds,these are really small nowadays,but these are i believe mostly squareshaped or rectangular,
so just drilling a hole will not do.

edit:even if all squares have the same color now :D

Hi Folkert

Excellent, I don't suppose that you have any intention to produce a user guide for anyone like me who would like to build one?
