Once again, thanks for the opinions and info. From what i’ve heard and research i’ve done, I’ve decided to go with the chess store for that set I listed above. My board is 19″ with 2.125″ squares, so I should be gtg with this set! I would not dare go with pieces larger than this though.

The chess squares grid can be screen printed directly onto the wood in black ink. Here you can have a perfectly serviceable chessboard. But because of the exalted status of the game of chess many people prefer to use a board more fitting to be used for ‘the game of kings’. Hence the demand around the world for craftsman built, beautiful boards with fine veneers and inlays that would be serviceable possibly for generations!

As anyone who has bought furniture from IKEA or K-Mart knows veneered particle board does not hold up well to impacts of any sort. The corners are particularly vulnerable, and in the case of this product, the packaging is not adequate to protect the corners. Mine showed up with corners that had slight damage and I am pretty sure yours will too.
Choose your chessmen. A common misconception is that plastic chess pieces weigh less than wood chessmen. But this isn’t the case, according to Mr. Sullivan. “Unless you’re talking about a hollow plastic set you buy at a Rite Aid or Toys ’R’ Us, the vast majority—wood or plastic—are weighted with a metal slug in the base,” he said. Chess retailers often tout the fact that their pieces are weighted, but it’s a given.

I have gone thru several boards thru-out the years and I have always wanted a good solid wood board. When the Toy contest opened and I saw the Maker-bot as a prize, I knew exactly what I wanted to enter.
Among all the many products in stock are Chess House are storage chess boards. If you already own a set of pieces or you are shopping for pieces, a storage board provides the extra benefit of protection from dust and pets. If the storage board has slots for each piece, you’ll just need to make sure the height and diameter of the pieces fit the board you select.

MY DEFINITION OF PREMIUM, DIFFERS BY AN INFINITE AMOUNT. LAYERED TOILET PAPER IS THE CORE THAT WAS EXPOSED BY THE THREE DAMAGED CORNERS. COME ON, THERE’S ONLY FOUR. THE ONLY LIKEABLE FEATURE,BUT STILL BOGUS, IS THE RUBBER FEET INSTEAD OF FELT. CHINESE MADE. THEREFORE, CHINESE CHECKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For the money the board is ok. It’s a four, maybe a three-star product. The box proudly declares that the item inside is a wooden chess board. That’s a bit of a stretch. It’s most likely particle board with veneer. And the product description claims that it is an inlaid wood board and, if it is, it manages to nearly pass for a high-resolution photo-finish.
I bought this for a person who is disabled and is assisted by people in a team, and it is perfect. The idea was that the board could be placed in front of the person so he could look at the board and when he was in need of the space around him, the…

Our chess boards made from the exotic woods and are truly a work of art just like our chess pieces.
It looks good to me, then again I think i’ve been buying sets from that shady guy in Joseph-S’s post in the past lol. The sellers were willing to offer me a refund but they sold low quality Indian sets. I now know that.
M.M. from KS writes, “I received the chess set today! I can only say that the photos on your web site do no justice to the Collector Series chess pieces. I hand waxed them as you instructed, and they are truly exceptional.”

The first thing I had to do was put a clean edge on each board. I had to clamp my straightedge to the boards and rip a clean edge on each. Then, with the newly clean and straightened edge against the fence I ripped them to about 4″ wide and cross-cut them to 28″.
Chess, checkers and backgammon games are more than just board games or great gifts. They open doors to higher thinking, planning and learning how to be proactive. These games also are loads of fun as challenges are met and won. Get your game on today.
In addition to the bog standard boards we also sell a superb range of luxury boards. When you consider the quality of some chess pieces it seems silly to place such things on a basic chess board. If you want to give your luxury chess pieces the chess board they deserve then our range of luxury chess boards is the place to choose from. There is something magical about seeing the reflection of the chessmen in the surface of the board. Another aspect of our boards worth boasting about is the fine hand inlays of rich wood veneers. Our Italian chess boards are all hand inlaid to perfection from stunning cuts of richly grained woods. All of these fine examples are available through our website at an unbeatable price.

I was very pleased when I opened this wood chess set. It is all wood and it doesn’t have the crack in the center like many boards with the hinges. I hate those since the hinges frequently break and the crack is a nuisance when pushing pieces over to the enemy territory. This board is solid, not too large to be trouble storing and not too small, as a lot of them are today that look more like a tic-tac-toe board. Like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, this one is just right.
B.F. from Idaho writes,”My plastic Collectors chess set arrived today, and I must tell you, Yes, to me it IS well worth what I paid for it. It is massive, heavy, elegant and high-class. A true work of art.”
