The board is beautifully crafted. Only drawback was that the center of the board was a fulcrum upon which the board spins. It came with felt pads under each corner, but I'll install some thicker pads to alleviate the spinning.
I really enjoy my new chess board, the craftsmanship is beautiful, been playing alot more chess games, against others and playing out different variations by myself.
Excellent. High quality product.
The chess was given as a gift. They loved the quality and craftsmanship.
I have now purchased half a dozen items from this company. Always top quality reasonable price and quick delivery. Couldn't ask for more
