Sorry, this item sold. Have naturalchess make something just for you, or try these other items:
This is a deposit listing for a special order Cocobolo set like this one . The dark solid spaces will be made from 2 inch square Cocobolo spaces and 1 inch trim . the light pieces will be carved from River Birch like in these photos and the dark pieces will be carved from slash pine like in these photos .
This deposit listing is non-refundable as it will be used to reserve my time and pay for supplies needed in making this set . Once the set is completed I will post a listing with photos of the actual completed set for the balance to be paid .
The kings will be 3.5 inches tall and the pawns will be 2.inches tall . All pieces will be weighted inside and then felted underneath to protect the board they play on .
I do cure all the wood that is to be used on each set using many processes that are my own . I start with tree branch and look to find each piece within the shape of the branch . Then the pieces are hollowed out at the base and I put in lead weights from 4 ounces down to 1/2 once depending on the size of each piece .Then I add felt to the bottom to protect the board .
I will email you back a sales permission form to fill out , sign and fax or email back before i can ship the completed set . shipping is extra outside of the continental Usa.
Let me know if I need to make any changes to this listing before you order .
All the best - Nick
