And they were blown away by it. "You shouldn't have," I was told, because it was so beautifully crafted in every detail.
I'm very satisfied with this board.
I use this chessboard for playing with my kids. It's great that it has clear numbers on all sides to teach them chess notation. The board seems like decent wood with no cracking or gaps.
Nice board for the price.
