About the Artist: 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.

well made product, with a nice wooden smell
and above all like great

Form, Function, Fantastic

Pictures and videos don't do this board sufficient justice. If you want a good quality wooden chess board worthy of luxury pieces, one that is a conversation piece whether it is stored or assembled for play, and if your available space is at a premium, you won't be disappointed with this board. I included a couple pictures. The pieces in the photo at 1.9" base are really too big for a 2" board (and I also need to do a better job focusing), but I had them can see (imho) that the board is not overshadowed by decent pieces. I have a different set of 1 5/8" base pieces that will be perfect for this board.

The beautiful unison of Bauhaus styling and Chess.

Recently picked up this board as I wanted to get back into chess and wanted to do so in style! This board exudes good design and is a bold addition to any table.
Shortly after picking up the base version, I realized that I deeply wanted to have the limited edition case as it would make for an excellent statement piece when the board was not in play. I contacted the wonderful people at Chess House and they happily obliged to sell me the Limited Edition case which is currently en route!
While some might want a board that conforms to more tradition styling, I believe that if you are taking the time to read this review, you're likely already sold on the board!

Functional Piece of Art

I am extremely happy with my Stack! Its ingenious design and fine woodworking definitely are “wow” factors, especially during assembly. The assembled board is functional art. Now, if only my game could match my beautiful board.

I was concerned my smaller chessmen (3” king) wouldn’t be an aesthetic pairing with the Stack, but the 2” inch squares aren’t overwhelming. Anything more than 3.75” would probably match better with the 2.25” square of the Tournament Stack.

Securely packaged and sent within two working days. Thanks, Chess House!
