As well as flat boards, there is a vast range of folding chessboards. These are hinged boards that can become a casket to keep the pieces in. This is a clever way to store your whole chess set in a convenient, easily transportable box. The chequered board becomes the decorative design on the outside of the box. Simple and clever!
That being said, the build is of great quality, they are just sending you something other than what you’ve seen. They Definitely need to clean up their act and sales method. Thats unacceptable. I am waiting on the replacement set that supposedly “matches the one listed in auction”. So we’ll see how this one looks…
R.G. from Alaska writes, “I have just received my order of Professional Series chess pieces. I must say that they are gorgeous! I felt I was treated as if one of the family in the way the order was taken and delivered. I’m a very happy customer!”
For protection of your chessboard a selection of chess board bags are available. Depending on the size board you may find one that fits your board and pieces. The 22″ chess bags for example fit the 21″ JLP Chess boards well.
But before you do that, drill a few holes in the edge of each strip with a dowel jig so that you can keep the parts from sliding around during glue up. Our Deluxe Doweling Jig Kit is perfect for this project. The squares of your chessboard need to line up perfectly, so be extremely careful when drilling the dowel holes.
J.E. from SD writes, “I recieved my chess set yesterday, I could not be happier. The quality is above what I expected. I would like to own a Jaques set someday but until then I will be perfectly happy with my Reykjavik II Chess Set.”
The fact is that many of our customers prefer their sets for display rather than to be use in games. Like a fine musical instrument, a vintage luxury automobile, or a first edition classic book, the luxury chess set is to be admired. Plenty of Regency Chess sets have been purchased by individuals who only have a rudimentary understanding of the game, if any at all. In fact, these are our typical customer for luxury sets – those who wish to see the set as a design accessory or a conversation piece. When you see our finely crafted pieces of fine hardwoods it is quite simple to understand why they are strictly on display. In particular, the expertise with which the knights are designed, hand carved, and finished make them the hallmark pieces in the set. As you can see, we also sell a larger version of the knights to be used as fine paperweights – that look especially classy on a fine wooden executive desk. Whether it be with a fine glass of port, your favourite cigar, or in the company of a connoisseur, we implore you to play a game or two on these luxurious heirloom sets – as life is simply too short to deny oneself such a luxury!
Hello, great project thanks for sharing! I’ve just completed the second glue-up and sanded it all down again but I’ve noticed a kink in one of the corners meaning the board does not lay completely flat. Is there anything I can do about this, such as clamp it flat and leave for days hoping it will stretch, or is it something I’m going to have to put up with? (This is my first woodwork project)

If you have to cut a lot of the edge off to make it all even, it will look odd. So in that case, I would do the opposing side of the board the same size. You could then designate the start areas on the board saving the work you have put into it already.

F.B. from UT writes, “Thanks so much! My brother is going to love his first real chess set. You are the best. But you know that already. Keep me in the loop on how you plan to overtake all the crap plastic sets out there.”
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.”
H.O. from ND writes, “Received my beautiful ebonized Winsor chess set today. It is awesome. A work of art I will treasure & play with. I can’t wait to save up enough for my House of Staunton chess board.”

Great responses guys and thank you for the information! I will take a look at and see if they have some offerings on eBay. I was looking at one set in particular because I like the dark “white side” vs the ebony side. I am not sure if I am supposed to be posting a link like this here but it was this set. Is this good quality you think?
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.
Some of these folding chess sets have the appearance of an antique book, so they can be conveniently placed on the bookshelf on permanent display. These designs were favoured by medieval English churches as they gave the game of chess a more scholarly look.
L.L. from NV writes, “I cannot begin to tell you how pleased I am with the chess set which arrived today. It’s so exquisite, I can’t stop looking at it. Though the pictures on your website are beautiful, they don’t do justice to actually seeing them in person.”
