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.

Blemishes blend with wood grain.

Just recieved this board and it is fantastic. What ever blemishes are present, they seem to just blend in with wood grain. I see them, but really, they do not detract from the beauty or playability of the board.
Just beautiful, and the craftmanship is gorgeous.
Thank you for a great product.


Stuart Luman
Great board, can't even tell there's a blemish

I've been eyeing the Stack chess board for months but could never justify the cost. I saw this one, 50% off due to some kind of blemish/imperfection and jumped. I don't regret it. I can't even tell what kind of blemish Chess House discovered but I won't ask too many questions. It's perfect for those who want a 16" (or plus if you get the tournament version) board but don't want to store something big in the house. Very nicely packaged and will enjoy for years to come. Bravo.
