Best Chess Set’s extra large 19 inch Templeton 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 Padauk and Maple wood lumber from Africa and the USA. The board is hefty for its size as it weighs approximately 4.8 pounds. In addition, it has padded feet underneath it to protect your furniture. Furthermore, the board has slightly rounded corners to give it a unique look. It is sold as a board only so you can use your own favorite set of pieces or purchase one of our matching sets. Please make sure to measure out our stated dimensions to see if they fit your needs before ordering. Comes in retail packaging. Best Chess Set is a California based company and this product is assembled in China in our own quality controlled factory.
