Item details



wood, hackberry, wenge

This chess board is 8 1/2” square. Each square is just over 1” and is made with 2 triangles back to back. Two types of wood are in the chessboard. The dark square is “Wenge” from West Africa; the light square is “Hackberry” from Missouri. There are 128 pieces in the over lay using two kinds of wood. The edges are rounded with no border.

This chess board was made in 2006. Also on the back, I signed it, listed the wood, and dated it. After the date, the words ”Foot Cut” lets you know it was made on a foot powered table saw.

Go to my ”Shop Polices” and “Profile” page to see my return policy and other information. To see other chess boards I’ve made, click on “Game Boards” or whatever gets your interest under “Sections in this shop”. The “Home” page itself can be rather confusing with everything mixed up. The “Sections in this shop” lets me show you all like items together as a unit.

Payment can be made using Pay Pal for immediate shipment, money order or check. Checks will have to clear before shipment is made.

Additional policies

Why are some of these things so old?

I did shows for 16 years, then had to stay closer to home as both my and my wife’s folks were living with us and needed more care. I made a lot of my things at shows and would finish them up at home. This way I built up quite an inventory of goods I would pack away in boxes. These are not like cars that wear out with age. They just set in a box and stay new. If when you get it, it is not what you want I have a very good return policy above.
