This chess board is 17” square. Each square is just over 2” and is made using 8 triangles. Two types of wood are in each square. Four kinds of wood are on the chess board. The dark square has “Wenge” from West Africa and “Walnut” from Missouri; the light square has “Bubinga” from West Africa and “Cherry” from Missouri. There are 612 pieces in the over lay.

This chess board is #108 (the number on the back), I made it in 1989. Also on the back, I signed it, listed the wood, and dated it.

This gives a completely different look to a chess board. In fact, the Walnut and Cherry next to each other makes it hard for me to tell the difference in the light and dark squares. The way I can tell at a glance, is the Wenge and the Bubinga that is on the inside of the dark and the light squares. Some people like the Walnut and cherry together, and the board does have an interesting pattern to it in the light. It would just be hard for me to play on is all. When not being used as a chess board, it is made to hang on the wall from one corner. They make a very beautiful wall hanging.

Go to my ”Shop Polices” and “Profile” page to see my return policy and other information on how I make these. 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.
