For the Big5 Chinese preset, I replaced the Wood/Marble board with a Wood board. The new board is still based on my modification of Michael Howe's design. With this new board finished, I now have a set of six boards, one for each piece set, that I am happy with and plan to use with the next version of the ZRF. I have even begun to prefer some of the new boards, specifically the three natural textured ones shown here, over my original Smess-style board. I am not especially into the two plain colored boards, but they do work with the piece sets I paired with them, and the goal here is to provide variety for people with different tastes and needs. So I'll probably leave them as is, though I am open to suggestions from people who use them more than I do.
