Wood Chess Pieces

Wood chess pieces abound in variety, style, shape, and wood type. The production of wood sets has grown tremendously in the last few centuries, enabling one to search out a set of chessmen ideally suited to one's taste. The preeminent producer of wooden chess pieces today is India, the birthplace of chess. Craftsmanship ranges from low cost, functional wood chess pieces to ultra fine masterpieces.

Most wood chess pieces have contrasting colors where the light player's pieces are an Indian boxwood, and the dark pieces consist of wood types ranging from black to very light. The most common wood types for the black player's pieces are:

Genuine ebony wood is a dense black wood, finely textured, with a very smooth finish when polished. It is highly valuable as an ornamental wood and generally the most desirable to chess players and collectors. Ebonized stained black and similar in appearance to ebony wood, it gives the stark black and light wood contrast at a lower cost. Various shades of Rosewood (Bud Rosewood, Red Rosewood, Blood Rosewood) range from a very dark brown to a reddish brown offer great contrast and rich wood color tone in the dark pieces. Shishamwood used for the Black player's pieces is the least contrasting and closest in color to the lighter side of chessmen. This wood is more plentiful and affordable.
