Subject: Chess board planing/sanding

Hello Everyone,

I am building a chess board inspired from the design called Stack sold at chesshouse.com. This is a gist for one of my daughters' friend who is a chess enthusiast. It is basically 4 sections of chessboard which goes together with magnets on the sides. I have finished up gluing and it came out well except that the surface is not level at all, which is expected. I am wondering what is the best way to make the surface level. I do not have a planer, but even if I had one I am afraid it would tear the board apart since grains in a chess board would not run in same direction. So I got thinking of sanders and I assume drum sander is probably the best option. Here again I do not own one. The next best thing I can come up with is a hand held belt sander.

What do you guys think of using a belt sander for this. Anything I should keep in mind before hitting the board with 80 grit belt?

Does anyone have a drum sander I can come and use to level the surface?

Thank you all for your words of advice and assistance.
