Specifically handmade in South Africa for the connoisseur buyer, this premium-quality chessboard is made from alternating walnut and maple woods. The board is raised on a solid wooden base to protect against humidity and temperature changes and is made from imported woods from the USA. It is finished by rubbing natural oils into the wood before applying multiple coats of Bri-wax (a mixture of beeswax and carnauba). Each chessboard is carefully handcrafted and promises to last for generations to come if cared for properly. Size of the board: 55cm x 55cm with 55mm squares.
Add the stitched leatherette chess box with velvet lined double tray (large) to gently cradles each piece to hold it safe and secure when packed away. Fixed slots hold each piece separately and an anti-snooper key locks the box for worry-free storage. Size: 33 x 31 x 12cm
