Honey Rosewood & Boxwood Chess PiecesWe carry an amazing selection of chess sets that should fit any need. If you are looking for hand-carved wooden chess pieces, we have you covered. Honey Rosewood is a soft, light brown wood with a strong grain, which leads to interesting variation from piece to piece. This wood is ideally suited to match either light or dark brown woods. We generally recommend Walnut or Teak for chess boards for these pieces. It is an ideal economic choice to see a true wood grain in the chessmen without the costs associated with expensive rosewoods. These sets are paired with traditional boxwood.
