This white marble and black onyx set is quite nice. The carving in the black pieces is gorgeous, but the white pieces are a bit marred by the white marble color irregularities which can look like repaired fractures. I presume that they are just variegation in the marble, however. The chess board itself is very lovely – the white and black are very glossy and smooth. I haven’t actually given it to my spouse so the pieces have not yet been played with, but I think that the markings, while not completely traditional for bishops in particular, will be adequate to allow for stimulating games with beautiful stone pieces.

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.
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.”

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.

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.
I was very pleased when I opened this wood chess set. It is all wood and it doesn’t have the crack in the center like many boards with the hinges. I hate those since the hinges frequently break and the crack is a nuisance when pushing pieces over to the enemy territory. This board is solid, not too large to be trouble storing and not too small, as a lot of them are today that look more like a tic-tac-toe board. Like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, this one is just right.
this chess board is a simple basic looking wooden chess board. There was a tiny chip in the board I received, but it wasn’t damaged enough for me to even complain. I just colored the tiny space piece in with a sharpie, took less than a second. The chess board is durable and I like that the board doesn’t fold.
