Wooden Chess Pieces
Wooden chess pieces abound in variety, style, shape, and wood type. The production of chess pieces in wood has grown tremendously in the last half-century enabling one to search out a set of chessmen ideally suited to one's taste.
The primary producer of wooden chess pieces today is India, the birthplace of chess. Craftsmanship ranges from low cost, functional wood chess pieces to ultra fine masterpieces.
Most wooden chess pieces consist of a light wood of the boxwood variety paired with a darker wood such as ebony, stained boxwood (ebonized), rosewood, shishamwood, acacia, and others.
