You can Lay-away any of my sets for up to 4 months and make 4 equal payments. Email if you would like to do a lay-away option for this set.
Made with 2 inch solid Bloodwood dark spaces and 1 inch trim.
All of my Sets are made to correct Chess Size Standards and Sizing Guidlines. This way the pieces do not look Crowded when in play.
The king height at 3.5 inch is the correct size for the board with 2 inch squares . The King should never be taller than 2 board spaces laying down. The King is the tallest piece and each piece by rank is smaller in hieght all the way down to the pawns . Also 4 Pawns should fit on 1 board space with the correct Pawn base size.
The inlay light spaces are made with 3/8 inch thick slices from many trees including Orange ,Crimson Bottlebrush,Douglas fur , Sycamore ,Pine,,Crape myrtle,Poplar,Grape vine,Walnut,Pear,Apple and others.
All chess pieces are sealed and cured using many processes that are my own. I do hollow out the base of each piece and add weight to each piece using 1/2 once up to 3 1/2 onces of weight. Then the pieces are felted underneath to protect the board they play on. When carving the pieces from tree branches I do leave a little bit of bark around the bottom of each piece for style.
The Kings are 3.5 inches tall and pawns are approx 2 inches tall.
Each set takes approx 30 hours to produce.I do every step in the process. One piece at a time..
The board is signed dated and numbered underneath.
