This chessboard is 11 3/4” square. Over all the board is 17 ¼” square. Each square is just under 1 1/2” and is made with 4 triangles. Two types of wood are in the chessboard. Three kinds of wood are on the whole board. The dark square is “Wenge” from West Africa; the light square is “Philippine Mahogany” from the Philippines. “Hackberry” from Missouri is around the chessboard itself. The design in each corner is a variation of a “Rolling Star” quilt pattern. There are 8 diamonds making a star but I put 4 triangles making a cross and hiding the star. The wood on the cross is “Wenge”. When the light shines on the “Philippine Mahogany” it shines like a new Penny. There are 560 pieces in the over lay, using 3 kinds of wood.

This chessboard is #61 (the number on the back), I made it in 1986. Also on the back, I signed it, listed the wood, and dated it. This is one of my older chessboards.

This gives a completely different look to a chessboard. When not being used as a chessboard, 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. 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.
