Chess boards, By Brandon, Handmade - Very Large Board. Brand New. 2.5 squares
The chess boards I have posted are an investment that will last for generations. I strive for a quality that is unsurpassed by other builders, both in materials, workmanship, design, playability, and finishes. I build chess boards because it fulfills my love of the game and my love for woodworking. I also build custom chessboards and chessboard tables, anything you might want. This chess board is made of Purple heart (an African wood) and imported German beech. The playing squares are, 2 1/2 inches square Making just the playing surface 20 by 20 inches. This does not include the boarder. The selected Purple Heart (used for the dark squares), came from a very fortunate find of exceptionally rich and deep grained timber. Not all Purple Heart timber is equal in beauty. The imported German beech (used for the light squares) is and expeptionally hard wood, and the grain from this selected wood complements the purple heart beautifully. Take note of the decorative banding that separates the border and the playing area. This board also incorporates "Imperial corners, " that after years has become a signature with many of my chessboard designs.
The boarder is a full 2 7/8 thickness on all four sides, making the overall size of this chess board 25 3/4 by 25 3/4 approximately. The board is 1 3/4 inches thick and it's solid wood. The height of the board is just a tiny bit shy of 2 inches off the table. As an optional accessory, all of the chess boards I build can be mounted on a feee standing pedestal base, making your chess board an independent game table.
The pedestal base is not included in this listing, However, it can be made of many potential designs. I will package this chess board with great care for the purchaser. Contact me if you would like a custom chess board built with a design of your own choosing and woods to complement your taste.
I always package my chessboards with superb care. Note: these boards are heavy. The item "Chess boards, By Brandon, Handmade - Very Large Board. 2.5 squares" is in sale since Sunday, November 29, 2020.
