Canât get enough of chess? How about a double sided chess board? Both sides are exactly the same except one side has the playing surfaces raised 3/16â. The other side is flush with the trim and the entire surface is raised off the table by 3/16â. Either way it works. The squares are 5/8â and the overall dimensions are: 16â x 16â x Â¾â thick. The board in the picture is made with Cherry and Hard Maple, with a Black Walnut trim. The chess board is sold without any playing pieces. All of my chess boards are custom made. I can make your squares any size (or thickness) you would like. The squares can be left as a straight cut (as in the pictures) or chamfered. Different woods could be used. Please ask. I will try to accommodate any requests at no extra cost.
