➤ NATURAL BEAUTY:
Each handmade walnut and maple chess board is unique due to natural variations
in the color and grain of wood. This variation is part of the beauty of working
with natural materials. The item you receive will vary slightly from the one
that's pictured here, but will be equally beautiful.
➤ SIZE/DIMENSIONS of BOARD:
Playing surface: 13" x 13" (1-5/8" squares)
Overall size with border: 15-1/2" square x 3/4" thick
The playing surface is backed by Baltic birch for stability. Rubber pads on
the bottom of the board protect surfaces and prevent slipping.
➤ CUSTOM ENGRAVING:
We'd be happy to engrave names, dates, or a message on the back of the chess
board for an additional $15. See listing photos for example. Please select the
"custom engraving" option and enter your request when you order. We'll send a
proof for your approval before we actually engrave your board, so please watch
for that message.

lined box is made from solid walnut and is well-matched to the board. Order it
