I recently bought the Reproduced 1940 Soviet Club Chess Set in Ebony / Antiqued Box wood and I am impressed by its quality in every aspect of it. Most important to me is the incredible work in turning and, especially, the carving of the knights, which is always the touchstone in every chess set. I purchased the non glossy version of it and I am so pleasantly impressed with the orange colour of the light pieces and with the to a certain extent shiny deep black ebony look of the dark ones. To me, most amazing is the perfection and the detail on four knights: incredible. The stability, touch and feel of every chessman is also outstanding. Even more otstanding, all in all, when, as another buyer says, the set has been made out of only one or two pictures of the original. Finally, the ensemble is in full harmony betwwen all its elements. Last but not least is the 30% discount I got in the prize. Thank you ChessBazaar craftmen.

First, you’ll need eight strips of 2″ wide solid wood in contrasting colors. Maple and walnut work well together, but there are several other good combinations. Cut our strips of each material to 2″ on the table saw. Measure one of the strips with a digital caliper and record the measurement; you’ll need it later. Your measurement needs to be accurate, so be sure to use a precision instrument like our 6″ steel digital caliper. Each strip should be about 18″ long.

We have been ordering Dubrovnik pieces as prizes for our annual tournament for about 4 years. They are highly regarded and attract many well rated players to the tournament. The sheesham and boxwood pieces are authentic to the Bobby Fischer set, are well balanced and weighted and durable.
If you decide to go with a wooden board, chess pro Mr. Dlugy advised purchasing the flat as opposed to the fold-up style. “Solid boards are simply more stationary,” he said. Mr. Seirawan agreed: “A flat board is much preferred as the fold is distracting.”

Just an update guys – I have had a bad experience with TheChessStore so far! The set arrived, and although the build quality is excellent (weights, felting, finishing), the set looks nothing like the eBay auction above I came to find out from TheChessStore that they switched manufacturers and that is the reason for the different look. I am waiting for a replacement set that supposedly closer matches the one I paid for.
this chess board is a simple basic looking wooden chess board. There was a tiny chip in the board I received, but it wasn’t damaged enough for me to even complain. I just colored the tiny space piece in with a sharpie, took less than a second. The chess board is durable and I like that the board doesn’t fold.
