This set at this price would be made from solid Bloodwood 2 inch board spaces and a mix of Inlay light board Spaces .
The playing surface would be raised approx 1/4 inch above the trim of the board .
The Chesss pieces would be carved from river Birch and dark stained Oak .
Each set takes approx 28 to 32 hours to produce and I do every step in the
proces by myself : One piece at a time ..
Also please look at my 178+ sold orders from my Etsy store if you wish to get color ideas on what you may want on your set :
Any of the Black sets , Rough edge trim sets , extra pieces and some types of wood used for the pieces do cost extra .
Thank you - Thank you again to all who have ordered my sets
over so many years.
I am honored to do my woodworking for you.
The kings are 3.5 inches tall and pawns are approx 2 inches tall . Other size sets can be more or less depending on the size.
When carving the pieces from tree branch I do hollow out the bottom and fill with lead weights. From 5 ounces down to 1/2 ounce depending on the size of the piece. This is known as Quadruple weighting : The piece is now 4 times as heavy as the weight of the raw wood by itself.
Then I use many processes to cure and seal all wood used in the sets . This helps the sets to last many lifetimes.
I do have a layaway option on any of my sets. UP to 5 months with 1 equal payment each month.Email me if you would like to layaway any of my sets and I will create a listing for you to purchase .
All the best . Nick
