That is a good eye and you are onto some of TheChessStores games! They sell a quality built set but their photos are NOT representative of what you will get. They use templates for different set auctions and have switched manufacturers, while still using old photos!
We stock one of the biggest and best selections of chess boards for sale in the UK. We buy only from high quality suppliers based in Europe including Italfama and RECHAPADOS FERRER S.A. Our boards start at just £32.00 and stretch to over two hundred pounds for our supreme quality luxury lacquered boards. Unlike other retailers we stock a complete range of sizes of most of our boards. You can select the size you require at the time of ordering. It’s worth noting that none of our wooden chess boards are sourced from the far east where quality is as low as the prices. We only source them from approved European suppliers who guarantee us the best quality.
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.

Glue and clamp the chessboard together. You should see some glue squeeze out on the surface of the panel. If you don’t, you didn’t use enough glue. Let the squeeze out get tacky and then scrape it off with a putty knife. Remove the clamps when the glue has dried and cut the panel length.

This chess set is not what I expected, but turned out that my son loved it. I thought it would be bigger. To my surprise, the pieces are magnetic (guess I didn’t read closely). I love that it holds the pieces underneath. My son was very satisfied. I just wish the pieces were bigger.

Collectable Chess Sets have been distinguished by both design and materials – namely fine dense hardwoods such as ebony, rosewood and red sandalwood. Some of these hardwoods are restricted from export by countries that have chosen to preserve their limited supplies. Exotic woods such as ebony can take up to 100 years for the tree to reach full maturation. The government of Brazil has placed a ban on the export of their rosewood stock. This wood was previously used in the crafting of musical instruments – renowned both for its aesthetically pleasing finish and its resonant tonal qualities..The government of India has restricted the export of all raw ebony and rosewood. The export of such finished products is allowed, but there may soon come a day that an ban is imposed. As a result of restricted supply, the world’s premier crafters of wooden chess pieces have stocked many years supply of these exotic woods. It is reasonable to conclude that an investment in a chess set crafted of fine woods is an excellent decision.
