decorative chess sets folding chess sets wooden chess setsChess remains one of the most popular traditional games, and wooden chess sets has been one of our most popular products since we sold our first set back in 1998. Made from  a selection of specially chosen wood varieties our handmade wooden chess sets  represent excellent value for money – either as a gift, an ornament or for the serious player.  

Each set is carefully chosen before being added to our range to ensure that it conforms to our exacting standards of workmanship and quality. All of our wooden chess sets fold in half so that the board , when not in use, can act as a container for the pieces – so keeping them secure in transit or storage so that they are ready for use when the next game is planned.  wooden chess setsAs regards the boards, they are hinged so that they fold, and have a clasp on the edge to secure the box when it is not in use.  Some of the squares are stained to give the colour difference whereas some of the more expensive sets have the squares produces by intarsia, which is where thin veneers of wood are laminated on to the boards to give the light and dark colours for the squares.  Most of the boards have alphanumeric notation around the edges and many also have additional carvings to add that extra touch of quality and uniqueness of design. Many of the boxes have inserts in the lid of the box for storage of the pieces- the other models just have a felted interior. The pieces themselves have a felted base and are made from several different woods. Depending on the design some are weighted (especially the Tournament sets), some have extra embellishments such as pyrography markings or inlaid  brass sections.  

Designs range from the traditional Staunton type of chess piece through to the more artistic designs, but each set is perfectly suited  for either playing with or being used purely to enhance the decor of any room. In addition to these chess sets we also have – 3 player chess sets, magnetic or travel chess sets, plastic sets  and starter sets which are ideal for the young player just learning the game. We also have a few sets of backgammon and chess (and draughts), as well as chess clocks.
