The classic chess piece set is one of our best sellers, this is the preferred style of the club and tournament player. Hand carved and turned using boxwood, pieces are weighted and felted. The dark pieces undergo  process called " ebonsing" the chess pieces are immersed in stain that penetrates the hardwood and gives the appearance of the much more expensive ebony wood however without the price tag.  

The pieces are hand polished and buffed to a sheen using shellac which not only protects the wood, it is also aesthetically pleasing. Each piece has green felted base pads fitted to protect the chessboard and enhance piece movement.
