The flagship Bollinger House Chess Board.

Ultra-Fine Solid Hardwood Chess Board - Maple against Walnut, Satin Finish - Handmade in British Columbia - Built to meet FIDE Regulations - Pieces not included!

This board was originally designed as a Christmas gift for an avid chess lover who, for years, could not find a high-quality chess board that met his expectations. On the morning of December 25th, 2020 - his expectations were finally exceeded. Prior to delivery, nearby eyes drawn to the board put slack into their possessor's jaws. Beauty can be terrifying.

The board is patiently made from raw hardwood lumber, over several days by 2 hands (a left and a right) at a community workshop in British Columbia. Every piece is unique, and feels incredible in your hands. Each finished board package will include the dates of production from start to finish. Engraved algebraic chess notation (coordinates) is included and highly recommended for the study of chess.
