For those already familiar with the luxury nature of JLP products, this board will be intriguing. It is the first in a possible line of framed chess boards for play, display, or even wall hanging. This board does not have as many clear finish coats as typical JLP boards, so it does not have the same ultra-smooth finish. When the series begins, they will have the full 7 process finish.

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.
