Timeless Chessmen
on Steel Blue Flex Pad makes a highly potent, versatile chess set with the luxury of wood pieces. We've also paired the Timeless Chessmen on a Natural Edge Board for an attention-grabbing conversation piece that will provide endless enjoyment in a home setting.

The Timeless Pieces are fantastic for all levels of play. Sometimes called the "German" design, it's a timeless representation of simple, yet elegant Indian craftsmanship. It's consistently a set of choice for home and competitive play. With no sharp points to break, it can withstand years use. If pieces are ever lost, they are easy to replace with the help of Chess House.

Natural Edge Chess Boards are entirely unique. Our Pennsylvania craftsman selects each piece for visual beauty from American black walnut and hard maple. The sleek playing surface is cut and formed, then surrounded by specialty cut walnut to show the unique grain patterns and the outside edge in which the individual tree grew.

The precision hardwood block construction receives multiple protective finishes for a distinctive, luxuriously smooth surface. 

Truly one-of-a-kind masterpieces, each one is photographed, highlighting natural edge formed from wood just beneath the tree bark.

22" to 22.5" Square, 64 Squares: 16" x 16" with 2" squares

The Flex Pad Chess Board offers even more convenience than most roll-up vinyl chess boards in that it lays flat every time and can be both rolled-up and folded. Merely 1/16" in thickness, the smooth playing surface interacts well with club style or any felt based pieces.

Here, the 3 3/4" tournament size Timeless Chessmen contrast superbly and show off the luxury of wood crafted chessmen on a brilliant, highly portable U.S. made chess mat that's a full 20" square.

I’ve enjoyed your web site for several years and have made a few purchases. As an experienced woodworker (hobby only) I’ve completed a custom-designed dedicated chess table. Would you have any interest in highlighting this project for whatever reason? Many thanks.

The live edge chess board looks beautiful and I also think the blue board is a big improvement over previous portable soft boards.

Oooo… I want one of each! The natural edge board is beautiful and would look nice in my living room. But that Flexpad looks right spiffy and would be a great board for camping trips, picnics and parties. I vote for the Flexpad.

Natural edge is really a beautiful chess board.
But i don’t like the timeless chessmen set. It’s difficult to say why, but it lacks personality, elegance.
So I think it does not deserve this chessboard and will have to be content with blue flex pad.

Collectively the comments indicate that the combination of flexpad and natural edge boards provide a versatile playing strategy with these handsome chess pieces. Ready for any opportunity to play. Champion combination that with a moments thought indicates an elegant solution to enjoy and appreciate almost every chance to pursue this great game.

I am older and appreciate the craftsmanship in natural edge board. I love the raised playing surface and the border around it created by the natural edge slab. The contemporary roll up mat would be great for travel and teaching my great grandchildren how to play. Win-Win. But the vote has to go to the natural live edge board.

For personal use I’d prefer the natural edge. The design is befitting of the historic and nostalgic nature of the sport of chess. It is eye catching and inherently a motivator merely by seeing the board. It would make a great addition to anyone’s home, regardless of the motif, and would thrill and cause excitement in any classroom.

The Natural Edge clearly features the earthy and historically classical appearance of chess pieces and boards over the centuries. There is no doubt it reflects the history of this great game along with the warmth of natural wood giving it not only a striking appearance while making a statement of pride and beauty, a center piece worthy of any home.
