    Nice coffer, worth the money

    Posted by Richard Sava on 4th Jan 2018

    I recently acquired this for a 4.4" set I bought from a friend. I normally have 3.5 - 4.0" sets which I use the much less expensive boxes for. I decided this new set needed some luxury. I waited a while to buy, kept waiting to pull the trigger on it. Was not sure I wanted to spend the money. Now that I have it I am glad I bought it. I do not often give 5 stars on anything but this coffer deserves it. It is beautifully made, a nice finish on it. The top tray fits very snugly into the box. The pieces fit well. It is well made. This can easily become a center piece in a room on a coffee table or other prominent area, great for starting discussions about chess. In my opinion, this box will satisfy just about anyone with a need for a coffer for a larger, more expensive set they wish to showcase. 10/10 I will buy again if I have a need for a larger storage box for my more expensive pieces.

    Gorgeous Chess Box

    Posted by Leroy on 2nd Dec 2017

    These Bubinga chess boxes are simply exquisite. They exude class. I recently used one to store a newly acquired set. Competitors easily charge double the price for similar chess storage boxes. This is why I love wholesale chess. I also have to comment on the amazing customer service I received from Robyn. I had a minor issue and Robyn & wholesale chess were very attentive and prompt with a resolution. Whole sale chess is simply hassle free and their prices are bar none for quality chess products. Will definitely be returning for all future chess purchases.

    Large Bubinga storage box

    Posted by Marv on 28th Feb 2017

    A very nice storage box...eior finish is impressive. The coffer storage comparts.are adequate if not moving the box, otherwise pieces come out of their compartments if the box is tilted.

    best value in chess storage

    Posted by Allen on 22nd Dec 2016

    Incredible for the money.
    Beautiful way to keep chess pieces from knocking each other up without spending as much on a storage box as the original pieces cost.
    Way better storage per dollar than anything else.
    Attractive, classy, great protection.
    I have bought other boxes for more that look cheaper and smell like a toxic chemical spill.

    Large Bubinga Coffer Chess Box, a Great Value !

    Posted by Mark B on 24th Oct 2016

    Very pleasantly surprised when this coffer style chess box arrived. At almost $200 less than the HOS coffer box, and less $ than many medium size chess boxes, I thought when I ordered it that perhaps this box was a factory second or of poor quality. Absolutely not! This is a beautiful and well constructed coffer chess box, but at a value price. It has a deep glossy lacquer finish similar to a grand piano, uses quality brass fittings and is structurally solid. It arrived in absolutely perfect condition thanks to Whole Chess's typical excellent shipment packaging.

    The only functional difference between this coffer box and the HOS box, is that the HOS has two removable trays. This one has one removable tray on top for 17 pieces and the remaining 17 pieces have their own individual compartments at the bottom of the coffer box. For a cost savings of almost $200, I can give-up the second tray.

    I have one good boxwood and ebony chess set that I have been wanting to maintain in a coffer box. But, previous choices of coffer style boxes cost as much, and some more, than my chess set! Luckily, this box was the perfect choice for me.

    A very nice chess box

    Posted by Bernie McKichan on 10th Oct 2016

    The box is very well made and an excellent addition to my chess equipment. I purchased this item rather than those similar to it for the individual slots for each piece. I would have preferred something in more muted color / wood, but it is well worth the purchase price.

    This box is BEAUTIFUL!

    Posted by Steve Lamansky on 1st Jun 2016

    The box is obviously well made from gorgeous wood. The compartments are generous to accommodate larger size sets and the inside felt lining is excellent. The only reason I did not give this box 5 stars is the locking mechanism—it is difficult to lock and seems like a second rate lock, compared to the rest of the storage unit.

    Tremendous value

    Posted by seblick on 5th May 2016

    This box is well-made from beautifully grained bubingawood. The fit and finish are excellent. The compartment trays are equally detailed and fitted.
    This box at this price (50% less than comparable items) is a true bargain.
    Worthy of your finest pieces, no doubt.
