My father has a chess table which was his father’s before, so has a bit of age to it (his father died in the 50s)
the inlaid squares are not in perfect condition and need a bit of love, in particular a piece that needs replacing…

logically, cutting, flattening, sizing and glueing a piece of wood shouldn't be tricky
but - what is the best way to try and match wood / colouring etc.?

additionally - I am assuming that in terms of maintaining the history we should leave other squares which are cracked but still original
