Our Black and Ash Burl Deluxe Chess Board is a wonderful choice for brass, ebony, and especially our black and natural high gloss chess sets. The black and golden color of the natural ash burl creates a beautiful and rich contrast enhanced even more by the high gloss polyurethane finish that gives the chess board a glass-like appearance. A triple inlay (white-black-white) pinstripe around the playing area along with an extra wide frame adds elegance to already spectacular chess board. Made from the finest veneer available, the precise inlay work by the craftsmen of Rechapados Ferrer is simply unsurpassed! One of our most popular chess boards!
