Product Details

The STACK chess board is a fascinating and exclusive centerpiece and the most unique and functional chess board ever made. It's for those who have an eye for artistic craft, who appreciate extraordinary craftsmanship, and who enjoy the game of chess.

As each layer is placed, embedded magnets join the four quadrants to form a smooth and seamless 64 square game playing surface. These same magnets rejoin the stacked layers into the three sided, dovetailed, custom walnut display box for display. The unique number for each Limited Edition STACK is engraved in the box to emphasize the exclusivity, uniqueness, and care that goes into every chessboard produced.

The soft suede wrap with embedded magnets artfully covers the STACK to both protect and enhance it's presentation.

Those who appreciate attractive, well made goods will enjoy the fine maple and walnut hardwoods finished to perfection.

The STACK blends art and functionality in a complete unique and exclusive product crafted by hand in Pennsylvania. The completely original chessboard is suited for games with a friend or loved one or as a centerpiece representing innovation and intelligence. It's a perfect gift, a clever, refined, and bold work of art that transforms into a seamless and solid hardwood chess board that's both eye-catching and startlingly precise for a handcrafted product.

Each Limited Edition Stack is engraved with a number up to 250 units.

About the Artist: John has a rich woodworking heritage in the state of Pennsylvania. Originally from Switzerland, the skills were passed down through five generations. This lost art of woodworking is continually refined, blending timeless methods with the latest knowledge of wood behavior. For example every design must be carefully planned with the appropriate wood selection and cuts to account for variations in humidity that cause natural expansion and contraction of wood. To craft a wood product that will last for generations, John gives great attention to every phase of production including wood selection, drying, cutting, curing, crafting, and the multi-step finishing process that results in the smooth, elegant, lustrous finish for which the JLP products are known. Every product is personally overseen by John and must meet his standards before releasing them to Chess House.

    Defective STACK Chessboard received

    Today I received my order. But am disappointed to find out my STACK Chessboard has maple spots and there's a paper sticking there saying "Spots in Maple $15 Less".

    First, I haven't got a $15 deducted (I did use a coupon code on Checkout, but using a coupon code doesn't mean I have to receive defective items); And I would rather want a perfect STACK chessboard without maple spots but not US$15 off (well, no one contacted me on this prior to shipment, nor asked me whether I would agree to $15 deducted in turn for a imperfect STACK board). I haven't gotten the $15 off anyways.

    Chess House, please reach out to me regarding this issue asap, would need to exchange the item for a perfect one. This is not a very good experience after all.

    Email sent to Chess House hoping to resolve the issue. Hope that they will reply, I am order from Hong Kong fingerscrossed I get a response.


    Everything I was hoping for and more. A perfect chessboard for those of us with limited storage/surfaces. The quality of workmanship is superb, perfect magnet alignment, excellent wood quality and to my surprise the edges of the squares are rounded. Way more than I expected. Gee, I might have to collect all of them!

    He was delighted!

    My husband was thrilled with this chessboard. Quality is exceptional and so very clever,.

    Great design. Beautiful chess board

    I've been looking for a solid wood chessboard for some time--no veneers, no engineered wood. Spotted this in a blog some time ago and was disappointed it was out of stock when I decided to purchase. So glad it was back in stock when I happened to be looking again. I love the contrast of maple and black walnut, as well as the thought that went into the construction. Even the leather wrap with magnetic closure was well-considered. This is a design that literally clicks.

    Simply amazing

    Just received my Stack chessboard. It is simply amazing. I was expecting a nice board, but it is more than that. The craftsmanship is perfect. All the details are awesome. The feeling and the smoothness are very good as well.

    I took me 3 months to decide what my new board will be and I am extremely happy with my choice. Really recommend it.
