Product Details
Players, admirers, and those who enjoy well-made products will appreciate the workmanship of this chess board that is ready to pair with a variety of suitably sized chess pieces. All Heirloom Collection Chess Sets are built on this board.

The chessboard is handcrafted in Pennsylvania from locally sourced premium walnut and maple woods. The process of creating the boards takes many months, from the drying and curing of woods, to the special cutting and assembly process, to the final details that include grooves, beveled edge, engraving, and the multiple finishes that gives it the trademark luxurious and distinguishably smooth surface. Over many months, Raphael created this chessboard model inspired by Drueke's obsolete works. It has become a remarkable showpiece and platform for any set of chess pieces one owns that are suitably sized, usually 3 3/4" tall on average.

The work of creating this chessboard is entrusted to a Pennsylvania family with a rich heritage of woodworking and farming passed down through five generations, and originating in Switzerland. The lost art of woodworking is continually refined, blending timeless methods with the latest knowledge on living wood behavior.

The creator of this chessboard has studied wood movement extensively. Wood is "living" after it is cut down, not a rigid block. Due to the circular ringed nature of a tree, the direction of cuts is very important to the natural expansion and contraction of the wood as humidity levels change from one environment to another. This unique expansion of both woods used in this work of art, require great attention in every phase.

Size: 21" square chess board with 2" squares, 3/4" thickness, it's ideally suited to standard 3 3/4" set of chess men.

Care: It can be helpful to store or display the chessboard vertically so that equal temperature and humidity is applied to both upper and lower sides of the wood. A light lacquer finish is applied for furniture style smoothness, and a soft, dry cloth should be used to wipe the surface dust free.
