The chess set wood explained:
Kikkerwood: Kikkerwood or Kikar is in the Acacia tree family. Rosewood and Golden Rosewood (Sheesham) are now an endangered species and exported from India.
It is becoming more and more limited. Kikkerwood isn't as red as rosewood, but has a very nice grain and resembles more of a Walnut in color.
Boxwood defined: Boxwood has a fine, even texture with a natural luster. The grain tends to be straight or slightly irregular.
Rosewood defined: Rosewood refers to any of a number of richly hued timbers, often brownish with darker veining.
Maple wood defined: Maple is a creamy white hardwood that sometimes has a reddish tinge. One of the hardest wood species, it can take a beating and look great for years.
Note About Rosewood:
With the harvesting of Rosewood becoming more regulated and more difficult to acquire as chess pieces, we want to make sure that you take advantage now if you are thinking about a Rosewood chess set.
