Ebony Wood Chess Pieces

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 of special interest to collectors.

The natural beauty of the dark wood can be seen since no staining is needed to achieve the rich dark appearance.

The most common species is of genus Diospyros. Ebony wood is a rarer dense wood in a black/brown variety. Interestingly, ebony is dense enough to sink in water and is finely texture with a very smooth finish when polished. This makes it especially valuable when used in ornamental crafts.

"Here's my favorite demo board for leading a chess class. Easy to see pieces. Easy to move pieces. Love having the red stars to highlight squares... can even pull out the dowel in the bottom edge of the demo board to use as a pointer when talking about diagonals, ranks, files, etc!"
