A beautiful, handmade chess board. The squares are made with Black Walnut and Maple surrounded by genuine Mahogany. The body is Black Walnut with Maple and Mahogany inlays and a little Padauk by the drawers. The drawers are Black Walnut with green felt. They are removable. The chess board is highly durable with a shellac, lacquer, and wax finish. The squares are 1-1/2â and are raised 1/8â to feature the playing pieces. The chess board is sold without any playing pieces. All of my chess boards are custom made. I can make your squares any size you would like. The squares can be chamfered (as in the pictures) or left as a straight cut. Different woods could be used. Please ask. I will try to accommodate any requests at no extra cost. The overall dimensions of this piece are: 15-1/4â x 15-1/4â x 2-5/8â high. The overall dimensions of the chess board would increase or decrease depending on the size of the squares.
