Hello I have an old chessboard. I think part of it is veneer, plywood and
the chess squares are inserted wooden pieces. The board is foldable- the
"hinge" I think is a leather sleeve, and the backing is felt.
However the chess board is warped or twisted. Its a basic straight line warp
My wife suggested I place it under a heavy book to help straighten it out.
After two days, it seemed to have helped. But I noticed that one of the
squares shows a few stretch torn marks.
Would it help if I placed it under a warm surface and then placed a heavy
book ontop of it?
