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)
We recently added two new styles of chess board to our huge range. The first is a very high quality black anegre and maple board that has been finished in a stunning gloss lacquer. These boards are available in sizes from around eighteen inches up to over twenty three inches. The second is a brand new design of chess board and is exclusive to The Regency Chess Company. It features black anegre squares and a rich brown palisander border. Like the black boards this is finished in a gloss lacquer and available in four different sizes. Both boards feature fine inlaid veneers and have been manufactured in Europe to a very high standard of precision and quality.

I have been burned twice in buying chess sets from less than reputable dealers. These “chess experts” claim they are selling the best thing since cream cheese, and then send me a set with uneven weights, miscolored pieces and overall bad workmanship. My biggest and most annoying experience has been with weights 1/2 popping out of the bottom of pieces, so they sit unevenly on the board. In other words, the bottoms are not 100% flat with the weight. Is this common amongst Staunton sets? I am guessing this is just a sign of bad workmanship.
Wooden chess boards range from rugged to the collectable for finer taste. A well chosen board brings your chess pieces to life like nothing else. Though there is no limit in the variety of wood boards available, practically all of them fall into two main material types:
Your board should have AT LEAST 2 1/8″ squares for this set, though, or it will appear crowded. For 2″ squares, consider a 3 3/4″ King, you won’t notice the difference in play but it will fit better on the board.

The design offered functional benefits that hold up today. The varying heights of the pieces reduced the chance that pawns could “hide” behind other pieces, said Jon Crumiller, one of the foremost collectors of antique sets and a tournament player himself.
