18" Solid Padouk & Maple Chess Board w/ 2 1/4" Squares



The set includes the fantastic, US made solid-wood chess boards. These boards are hand crafted solid blocks of Padouk and Maple (with a pearly tone for the maple). They have a design that straddles both modern and rustic and due to their hand carved construction, no two are ever the same. Padouk is an interesting color with a strong, deep red that develops and darkens over time with exposure to light. It works great with black, ebony, or crimson rosewood chess pieces.

This board has 2 1/4" squares and is suitable for most chess men 3 3/4" to 4" tall.

Made in the USA

Two features were not listed about this board; 1) it has a satin finish, (my personal preference). 2) This board is double-sided; meaning there is no felt bottom or feet. You can flip this board and choose whether the wood grain is vertical or horizontal, (I prefer horizontal). I took off half a star because it is not perfectly flat. Not a deal-breaker at all, and in no way affects the playability, beauty, and enjoyment of this board. Place a towel or placemat underneath, and it is not even an issue. The quality of construction and finish is superb. Heavy, thick, and unique. Should last for generations. I am using my ebony 3.25" w 1.5" base Fischer Spassky Library Reykjavik Series pieces. It just looks right. So easy to "see" the pieces, to "see" the game! Very happy with this purchase!
