Chunky solid pieces are favored among children and larger-handed adults alike. Our big family set has been around for years, still looks beautiful and is still used almost every night!
The kings stand 3" tall in this set, with the pawns standing around 1.75" The board measures 16" x 18" and features drawers to store the pieces. The dark squares on the board have been burned black, while the dark pieces have been lightly stained, allowing the grain of the wood to show through. Made of spruce wood and finished with 100% natural hemp oil to bring out the grain of the wood and naturally finish it.
All pieces are hand turned on the lathe by my talented 18yr. brother. Slight variances may occur, as with all things handmade. Board styles may vary slightly as well, as my older brother is always working to make his boards 'just a little better' and as well as improve his carpentry skills (board size will not vary and will always contain a carrying compartment for both pieces).
Made to order. Please allow 7-14 days completion time.

LOVE it so much! Thank you for wrapping it ever so delicately, too. Wow!! So, so happy!! You made our anniversary perfect!!! I could not wait to write this e-mail after opening the box with my husband. He has it displayed on our LR coffee table and keeps remarking at how creative and thoughtful the gift is and how awesome the work is... You have two HUGE fans here! Amy S."
