The Ebony Deluxe Wood Chessboard is made of alternating light and dark wood, (Ebony and Erable). The whitened Erable is also known as Bird's-Eye Maple. Bird's Eye Maple has a pattern of swirling eye-like disruptions in the grain of the wood that create an unusual pattern (see image 5). The wood is durable, hard, and has a fine, smooth texture. This board offers a classic black and white design with the quality of a stunning wooden board, plus a beautiful black border with striking wood grain patterns that is sure to draw attention. It's a standard tournament size and will look great with natural wooden pieces.
