The Alban is a unique, high quality design from the birthplace of chess, India and the JLP is handcrafted in the USA and finished
The board you see is made with American black walnut and hard maple, surrounded by specialty cut walnut to show the unique grain patterns and the outside edge in which the individual tree grew. The board is one of a kind and the craftsman hand selects each piece for visual beauty.
Precision aligned hardwood block construction is given multiple protective finishes for a distinctive, luxuriously smooth surface. It is handcrafted in Pennsylvania.
