Contemporary design solid chess board made in maple (the light squares) and acacia (the dark squares). The absence of a border means the overall width can be kept small (smaller coffee tables, etc.), but the square size still able to accommodate most chess piece sizes at 2″ per square. As for materials, acacia is a hard wood that has taken over from the old sheesham, slightly lighter but much more hard-wearing. The colour of acacia is a delightful mahogany colour of brown that has elements of black too. It is superb for any brown pieces such as sheesham, acacia or rosewood, and perhaps ebonised chess pieces.
Squares are 2″, the board is 16″ wide.
