This timeless chess board is finely crafted in the USA of solid walnut & maple wood with great attention paid to quality and durability. The natural wood tones are the perfect compliment to almost any set of chessmen. We recommend pewter, hand painted, or even varying shades of wood stained chessmen to add to this board. Made from American hardwood lumber that is certified eco friendly by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), each board proudly bears the Made in USA label engraved on the underside. A light finish is applied over the natural wood for an ultra smooth playing surface. This is a high quality board that will be cherished for generations for its classic simplicity.
