Padauk and Maple Chess Board is the very best chess board available for
matching with red sandalwood chess sets or contrasting with ebony. The rich
orange and brown colors of the African Padauk are identical to red sandalwood.
Made from solid wood, this chess board is handcrafted one chess board at a
time like a fine piece of custom made furniture. And best of all, this chess
board is made in America.
This is a 3-tier chess board starting with a
wide padauk frame with a maple accent line followed by a second (raised)
padauk frame, and then finally the raised squares. Four thick felt pads
elevate the chess board to keep it from ever scratching your furniture. This
board will fit chess sets with up to a 2.25" base and up to a 5" tall king.
