100% handcrafted in USA by a Chess House exclusive artist.
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.
The Stack is very well made and a pleasure to see and use.
Came well packaged and pieces fit together and aligned perfectly
To create a perfect chess board!
The Stack (tournament version)
I bought this board because I wanted a portable, higher quality wood board than what I use now. It's finish is excellent and it's easy to use assemble. I wish it had a border with coordinates and the suede holder covered all sides. Even so, A+
Sometimes a picture does not do something justice
And this is one of those cases. The pictures do not show the true elegance of this board. The satin finish combined with the set I bought are not really captured in the photos. I cannot tell you how happy I am with this purchase. Fit and finish are perfect! Bravo!!!
Superb chess board
I really love this chess board. It fits perfectly with my chess pieces. I am often playing chess with friend of mine at nearby coffee shop and usually not many people stop to watch. Got board few days ago and tried it. Dozen of people at coffee shop stopped to watch :)
If love to play chess just treat yourself with this board. It is worth every penny.
That's so wonderful! I'm thrilled that you are appreciating this board that I designed. It gets attention, doesn't it! Thank you so much for your review of it. - Raphael
Very nice board, part 2
Here are two pics of the board with the Fischer-Spassky commemorative set i mentioned in my other review. Sorry about the orientation.
