About the 21" Folding Chess Board and Leatherette Case in Rosewood & Maple
For most Staunton style chess pieces 3.75" to 4", this large rosewood chess board is the ideal playing and storage solution for extra mobility and compact storage.
- Folded Dimensions: 21" x 10.5" x 3"
- Unfolded: 21" x 21" x 1.5"
- Playing Area: 18.25"
- Squares: 2 1/4"
The board looks great out of the box, but after a bit of use the cost cutting they did is very obvious.
The inserts are very cheap foam that have been laminated together. This not only feels awful, but is very difficult to cut if needed. High density foam would've been easily worth the cost.
The finish is very thin on the play surface. Started to notice small marks after the first time playing; a fingernail is enough to ruin the clear coat.
Great quality. Fits my 3 3/4" pieces pretty well (all but the knight). Finish is beautiful. This is a BIG board and not super portable, so be sure you are looking for a big board. It's what I was looking for, and I was still a little surprised by the size. The first time I used it out in public, someone came by and commented on how good the board looked. The only drawback is that the "leatherette" cover is pretty cheap and I expect it will not last long (not a big deal).
