eBay is a good source because you  can see the seller’s record of satisfaction and ask specific questions.  But you can get lots of very nice wooden sets under $100.  TheChessStore and HOS are both reputable, your experience sounds very unusual, though, no decent seller is not going to replace a defective set.

I’m really not one to draw up and go by plans. I really don’t even like following plans. That being said, I do sketch ideas and make notes to figure out my rough needs for a project. This does have draw-backs at times, but I’m still able to “wing-it” with most projects.

I recently bought the Reproduced 1940 Soviet Club Chess Set in Ebony / Antiqued Box wood and I am impressed by its quality in every aspect of it. Most important to me is the incredible work in turning and, especially, the carving of the knights, which is always the touchstone in every chess set. I purchased the non glossy version of it and I am so pleasantly impressed with the orange colour of the light pieces and with the to a certain extent shiny deep black ebony look of the dark ones. To me, most amazing is the perfection and the detail on four knights: incredible. The stability, touch and feel of every chessman is also outstanding. Even more otstanding, all in all, when, as another buyer says, the set has been made out of only one or two pictures of the original. Finally, the ensemble is in full harmony betwwen all its elements. Last but not least is the 30% discount I got in the prize. Thank you ChessBazaar craftmen.

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!

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:

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.

Glue and clamp the chessboard together. You should see some glue squeeze out on the surface of the panel. If you don’t, you didn’t use enough glue. Let the squeeze out get tacky and then scrape it off with a putty knife. Remove the clamps when the glue has dried and cut the panel length.

    Few chess boards in America have the history of the Drueke chess boards. These boards are neither veneers nor inlays – they are actual solid blocks of wood made from American Walnut and Maple. This bo…
    The dragon chess game actually consists of three tiered glass boards on which an array of medieval looking characters are involved in a complex multileveled game. The game was invented by the creator of the popular “Dungeons and Dragons” games.
    Hunched over the table, brows furrowed, timer ticking, two fervently calculating minds compete over a handsome, hand-made chess set that befits the Game of Kings. Chess boards can be as designed with as much care and scrutiny as a strategy for the game itself or it can adhere to standard, traditional shapes and styles. With over a millennium of gameplay to learn from and reflect upon, even a vintage or antique chess set represents but a drop in the ocean of thought and competition spanning the game’s impressive historical longevity. The wide inventory on eBay is home to chess sets for every occasion including: tournament style, travel-size, gorgeous decorative sets, novelty, and more. Shoppers can choose from hand-carved exotic wood or lightweight plastic Staunton designs. Shoppers should also bear in mind that a tournament chess set is relatively large, as tournament rules dictate the board must have 2.25-inch squares and a king that is approximately four inches tall. A slightly smaller set may be less reminiscent of the boards over which Garry Kasparov vanquished opponent after opponent in numerous world championships, but it may better fit your coffee table.
    Our research has lead us to conclude that the basis for this new design of chess pieces was the Northern Upright Chess set. Complaints about the contemporary designs of chess pieces were well established in chess circles. By starting with an extremely popular yet highly artistic chess set, Mr. Cooke was able to focus his energies solely on correcting those deficiencies. The ornate features that were most susceptible to damage were removed, resulting in a chess set that was durable and less expensive to produce. The diameter of the bases was widened for increased stability and the chess pieces were weighted with lead to minimize tip over. Before the commercial launch of these new chess pieces, Mr. Cooke convinced Howard Staunton to lend his prestigious name to the new design. Mr. Staunton was England’s most celebrated Chess personality and the unofficial World Champion. The Staunton Pattern Chessmen, as they were officially known, became commercially available on September 29, 1849 and quickly became the world standard of chess pieces. Their lower production cost brought chess to the masses and did much to popularize the game.
