This 17" x 17" walnut and maple veneer board is ideal for a king base of 1 3/4"
The board is heavy, solid with very nice natural colors. I was initially disappointed I was settling for a "plain" looking board but I was wrong. I'm very pleased.
The chess / checkers board is very nicely made. It is about 1/2 inch thick. All seams are tight and true. It's a good-looking game board.
