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.

Well, the only thing I can really recommend is to never ever order chess sets via internet. You gotta buy such things like chairs and sofas where you want to try them out to see whether they are really comfy: So go into the next real chess store and let them show you their sets. Take a close look at the pieces, weigh them in your hands … it’s the only way to buy (plus it is the most fun).

The wood used for the 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).
“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.
