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.

Great Board!

I bought this board to use in tournament play. I already own the standard Stack board with 2.0" squares so I thought I was accustomed to the board details and design.
Well, this board is better. Not only do my 3.75" King sized sets fit on it, but the magnets are some kind of wonderful. Once I put the board together and it is on the table for play, It handle like a solid board. Yes, it is a chore to break the magnetic seal to take the board apart when done. And this is a good thing.

Of course the finish and quality of the wood is exceptional. I put a very nice, Jaques reproduction set on it and promptly started fielding compliments from people in the area where my game was going to be played. I'm not kidding. Other players came up telling me how nice the board was and the set on it.

This is a highly recommended board.

Cool and practical

The wood used for STACK chessboards is, well, pretty much perfect. It takes a moment to figure out to snap the four quadrants together (there is more than one way) so that the grain is consistent, but the result is spectacular in a minimalist kind of way. Players who have not seen this before are astonished: a real wow factor. The tournament edition (2.25 inch squares) is large enough for most of my chess (piece) sets, whereas the 2.0 inch squares version is not. When not being used, the STACK footprint is no more than 25% that of a standard one-piece wooden board (the STACK has no border), which makes it much more office and private library friendly.
