The first thing I had to do was put a clean edge on each board. I had to clamp my straightedge to the boards and rip a clean edge on each. Then, with the newly clean and straightened edge against the fence I ripped them to about 4″ wide and cross-cut them to 28″.

To give your chessboard a finished look, add a 2″ border around the outside. Rip a few strips of either your light or dark stock and miter them to fit around the board. Then drill a few dowel holes to help you keep the border aligned when you attach it to the chessboard. Glue the border strips in place and sand the completed project to #220-grit.

“What a beautiful selection. I had a difficult time choosing just one set! I decided upon a marble chess set that is gorgeous and which I was very excited to give it as a gift. I highly recommend Chess House for their product array as well as excellent customer service. My shipment arrived very well packed and damage-free.”
Some very early chess boards were made of leather. There are also boards made of stone, but mankind’s quest for novelty and originality has produced an overwhelming variety of unusual chessboards. There are boards where the squares have become circles. There is a board with an undulating Dali-like surface with peg holes to fit the pieces. Also a board that has scalloped squares on which the pieces can rock and spin. There are even chess boards made of pastry, using pieces made with pastry cutters…mmmmmm, tasty!
Has anyone had any experience with TheChessStore.com? They do business on their site and eBay. The problem is, I am not a rich man at the moment and can’t spend a lot on a set. $100 is really my limit and I need at least a 4″ King with decent size base to fit my nice board.

You can finish this project any way you like, but a blend of equal parts oil, varnish and mineral spirits will give it a nice hand-rubbed look. You can also use a bamboo veneer to make it pop even more! Wipe a liberal amount of finish on the wood and spread it around evenly. Let the finish sit for about 15 minutes and then wipe it off. Don’t leave any wet finish on the wood. You might want to apply two or three coats. Let each coat dry several hours and buff the last one with #0000 steel wool for a satin sheen.
To be play-ready, your arsenal should include a club style roll-up chess board. They’re low cost, easy to source, and portable. That’s why the roll-up chess board is the foundation of chess play in the U.S.A. and in most cases, worldwide. Starting at 20 inches square it’s a large, visible size even for young players. These boards are played in scholastic events nationwide.

Teachers and coaches will find that a wall-hanging demonstration chess board provides that needed visibility to an entire class of students.

So should you go with plastic or wood? In general, the latter provides the most lasting value. “Properly kept it will last a lifetime,” said chess grandmaster Yasser Seirawan. But don’t discount plastic. The Play Magnus Educational Chess Set, codesigned by 24-year-old reigning world-champion Magnus Carlsen, has a modernized Staunton styling, a cool matte finish, and a nifty carrying tube. It costs less than $50.

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.
Board is 15.5″ X 15.5″. From beginners to established players, this travel chess set is an ideal gift for all! No worrying about lost or missing pieces (or listening to pieces rattling around). Foldin…
Chess is an intricate game that sprouts a child s intellect due the complex demands it puts on the mind. It is also a fun game that family members can enjoy together. The complexity of the game, however,…
And remember that the board’s aesthetic can affect game play. The alternating colors on chessboards should be muted—“soft to the eye, not glaring or highly reflective, as players study the board for hours at a time,” said Mr. Seirawan. “Tanned wood earth tones are preferred. Harsh black and red are terrible.”

Advance with Staunton. While chess originated in 6th-century India, it wasn’t until 1849 that the pieces we’re familiar with today were standardized. Known as Staunton Pattern pieces, they consist of a king crowned with a cross (the tallest piece), a coronet-topped queen, realistically rendered horse-head knights, castle-shaped rooks, slash-ingrained bishops and simple round-headed pawns.
