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!
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 outright 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.

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.

What i’ve figured out though is that’s not actually what they look like, they’re using the 4″ King picture template in the “Pieces Only” listing for the 3 inch set, the 3.5 inch set and the 4 inch set. Here is what the 3″ itself actually looks like:

Level the playing field. House of Staunton’s Mr. Sullivan suggested that novices begin with a quality roll-up board, which are often used in tournaments, then trade up to a more conventional wooden model. Roll-up sets are lightweight, portable and affordable (as low as $5). “And if you drop it, throw it or even spill on it, it’ll still be perfectly functional,” he said.
