Walnut is the premium wood used for our veneer boards, giving deep rich colours with vivid yet unobtrusive grain. Being veneer means that the use of expensive woods is kept to a minimum while still providing the desired looks of it. It also keeps not only the price of the board down but also its weight.
This walnut / sycamore board comes with square sizes of 45mm (approx. 1.75") and is thus perfectly suited for smaller tables and chess pieces. The recommended base diameter of the king for this board is one with 35mm (approx. 1.4") or less. In length, the board measures 44 x 44 cm with a thickness of 13mm. For the weight we find around 1.7kg and is thus easy to handle. Along the sides, an alphanumeric notation is printed which is useful for recording a chess game in your scoresheet. Four feltpads at the corners on the underside protect your table and also allows for an easy lifting of the board.
With this walnut board, the perfect compromise of gorgeous looks of a great wood and a low price is achieved. A great board were not too much of space is available or if you own already a set of smaller sized chess pieces.
