Best Chess Set’s large, 15 inch Hayes wooden chess board brings an understated elegance to each match you play with it. It is beautifully made but isn’t overly ornate to the point of distraction. It features inlaid, precision cut wood squares that are made out of Mahogany and Maple wood lumber from the USA while the border is made out of Sapele wood from Africa. Furthermore, the underside of the board is beveled for a unique look. The metal pieces are made out of a durable zinc alloy with bronze and silver electroplated finish. In addition, they are padded on the bottom to protect your board. The king is 2.5 inches in height with a 0.9 inch diameter base. The total weight of this set with pieces comes in at 4.6 pounds.
