I would love to build a chess set for you. It is definitely my favorite project to build. This product takes two to three weeks to complete. I will contact you regarding options such as size, wood type, piece design, etc. Additional charges may apply based on your choices.
The Gravel Chess Board was born after The Original Floating Chess Board. I wanted to maintain on the gaps between the squares because I liked the game play. The gravel added a new dimension to the boundaries of the playing field. While the stones are loosely set and can be moved around, the squares are secured in place with hidden fasteners. The squares are not perfectly flat and squared up to one another. This was intended to mimic what would occur if the squares were actually resting on the stone and not secured in place.
The battle field is framed with wide boards to contain the game play. The frame can act as a place to hold captured pieces.
Wood Types to Choose From:
Maple, Walnut, Boxwood, Cherry, Yellow Birch, Jatoba, Purple Heart, Wenge, other.
As shown, the board is 24" x 24" square with a height of 1.5". The pieces are between 2.5" and 4.5" tall. Each square is 2". The dark squares are Jatoba wood, the light squares are Vermont Cherry wood.
