Deluxe Wenge Wood Chessboard is made of alternating light and dark wood, (Wenge and Maple). Wenge is a dark, very straight-grained wood that creates a stark contrast from the lighter maple. Use your ebony/ebonized pieces with it, or enjoy an elegant variation by using wooden pieces with lighter wood tones. This board has standard 2 1/8" squares and a 2 3/8" border. Pieces are not included.
