Wooden Chess Boards – Board size: 17.75 (17 3/4")
Wooden chess boards range from rugged to the collectable for finer taste. A well chosen board brings your chess pieces to life like nothing else. Though there is no limit in the variety of wood boards available, practically all of them fall into two main material types:
- Veneer boards are common, with more designs and lower cost, they range in quality and most look great. The majority are made with a high density fiber core overlaid with a thin wood veneer. If you're the type that wants solid wood construction, these might not be for you.
- Solid wood chess boards are always higher priced because they are more costly to produce. 'Custom' boards are typically always solid wood. They appeal to those looking for true quality and a treasured heirloom. A truly well made solid hardwood chess board can be expected to last for generations.
