Few chess boards in America have the history of the Drueke chess boards. These boards are neither veneers nor inlays – they are actual solid blocks of wood made from American Walnut and Maple. This bo…
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 chess 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.
B.R. from IL writes, “I just received the new chess board and it’s just beautiful! The new chessmen look great sitting on it, and I’m sure it will give me hours of pleasure playing the greatest game of all !”

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!

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!

If are looking for a chess board online, you will come across a wide range from many well-known brands like – Ekta, klbl, Craft Store India and more. Whichever type of chess board you are willing to buy, be it a magnetic chess board or one made of plastic, you can now buy chess board online on Snapdeal and that too at a very reasonable price.
The wood used for the squares are Cherry and Norway Maple, the border is made from Norway maple. All of the wood used was harvested from local tress fallen during storms. After a really bad storm I ALWAYS drive around with a chainsaw offering to help and haul away some of their larger pieces (so glad I have a trailer).
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.
eBay is a good source because you can see the seller’s record of satisfaction and ask specific questions. But you can get lots of very nice wooden sets under $100. TheChessStore and HOS are both reputable, your experience sounds very unusual, though, no decent seller is not going to replace a defective set.
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…
Pick your price point. While top-line sets—featuring ornate, hand-carved chessmen and boards made of expensive woods—can run $20,000 and more, you can find a sturdy, handsome set for much less. Shawn Sullivan, Managing Director of Huntsville, Alabama-based manufacturer the House of Staunton said quality sets can be had for well under $100. His company’s “economy line” is its fastest-growing division. “Quality, when it comes to chess sets, doesn’t have to break the bank,” Mr. Sullivan said.
The pleasure and excitement of a chess game increases many fold when you lay the pieces on a beautiful wooden chess board. Like the chess pieces, the chess board is equally important as the game moves around on the chess board. If you already have a set of chess pieces and you want to buy a chess board online then you are at a right place. Our chess boards made from the exotic woods and are truly a work of art just like our chess pieces.
