Product Details

Why this discount?

The quality standard for these boards is very high and as they enter the warehouse each one is inspected to make sure they are absolutely amazing. Sometimes they are not quite amazing, so we move them to imperfect status, for reasons that might be insignificant or imperceptible to some people. But we want to keep the quality amazing for those sold as first rate. Additionally, sometimes minor imperfections appear during the manufacturing process and it would be a shame to discard the product after so much effort and material has gone into making it to that point. Sometimes we accepted a few of these boards at a discounted rate and pass the savings on to someone who loves this style of chessboard but really wants a break on price.

About the product

Players, admirers, and those who enjoy well-made products will appreciate the workmanship evident in this chess board that is ready to pair with a variety of suitably sized chess pieces.

It is handcrafted in Pennsylvania from locally sourced premium walnut and maple woods. It takes months from drying, curing, cutting, and assembly to the perfect multi-coat finish that gives it the luxurious and distinguished smooth surface.

Each board is crafted to near perfection and various styles are accomplished with the perimeter design. The Raised Edge JLP chessboard slanted panel perimeter highlights the square's edge in addition to the chess board surface.

The artist is from a Pennsylvania family with a rich heritage of woodworking and farming passed down through five generations originating in Switzerland. The lost art of woodworking is continually refined, blending timeless methods with the latest knowledge on living wood behavior. Wood is "living" after it is cut down, not a rigid block. Due to the circular ringed nature of a tree, the direction of cuts is very important to the natural expansion and contraction of the wood as humidity levels change from one environment to another. This unique expansion of both woods used in this work of art, require great attention in every phase of production.

The 21" square chess board with 2.25" squares and 3/4" thickness is ideally suited to standard 3 3/4" to 4 1/2" tall chess men with a base no larger than 2"

Great board

This is another great JLP (my 3rd) board. In my opinion any serious chess fan owes it to himself to try a JLP board whose selection of wood, crafts, attention to details and affordability far surpasses many vintage solid wood boards or similar boards currently available on the market. Highly recommended.
