Crafted in Europe, the Indian Rosewood & Maple Wooden Tournament Chessboard features Indian Rosewood (dark) and Maple (light) squares with an Indian Rosewood frame. This Veneered Chessboard is 0.5" thick.
This chessboard is standard tournament size with 2.25-inch squares. A very nice "workhorse" chessboard to use at a club and at home. My board arrived lying perfectly flat on a table and with only a minor shallow scratch caused by the grommet of a drawstring bag shipped with the chessboard. It will likely get far worse scratches from future blitz games, so I chose to ignore the scratch. This board pairs best with boxwood/ebonized sets. Sheesham, surprisingly, is a poor match for this board because it's just a bit too close in color to the rosewood squares.
