Product Details

Now you can fold the Player's hardwood board for more compact storage or easier transport! This design is very original in that the seam runs vertically with the grain making it nearly invisible when viewed from a several feet away. There is no loss to the square size and the hinges are also invisible. Plus, closing the board is simply lifting one side and closing it like a book. There is no need to lift the entire board before closing it. Likewise, when you lay it on the table surface, just open it like a book and set up your pieces.

Players, admirers, and those who enjoy well-made USA products will appreciate the superior workmanship and finish evident in the Player's Folding Chess Board.  The Player's board uniquely features decorative grooves running along the squares perimeter and beveled stylish edge. Precision aligned hardwood block construction is given multiple protective finishes for a distinctive, luxuriously smooth surface. It is handcrafted in Pennsylvania from locally sourced premium walnut and maple woods.

The JLP has gained significant attention among collectors and players seeking a superb chessboard that's not only a pleasure to use but will also last for decades. Those who have owned a classic Drueke chessboard will note remarkable similarity.

The Craft
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.

High quality board

The innovative hinge design sets this board apart from other folding boards,
and the woodworking is very good.
From a chess playing position (near right corner square white), the board
folds side-to-side, like a book, not like a laptop.
This means the wood grain goes in the less common up/down direction.

Excellent board

The board is really amazing: quality and craftsmanship is AAA+. I'm pleased with purchase and look
forward to future purchases with Chesshouse.com
