Classic Chess Set - Beautifully Handcrafted With Huon Pine & Burl Myrtle:
A sensational Solid Timber Chess Set
This unique chess board, pieces and their very own storage box are all made from our Distinctive Tasmanian Birds Eye Huon Pine and Burl Myrtle. Every piece and part of this Classic Chess Set has been lovingly handmade by "Chris" our resident craftsman.
Every single piece in their respective timbers featured here have been crafted from the one original piece of Timber. Including the pieces, the board and the box they come in, this means they all match are all exquisitely detailed and hand cut not turned. The incredible amount of work involved in this task to achieve the quality featured here is truly inspiring.
This particular unique design of Chess Pieces known as the " Classic Chess Set " started life back in 1849 and was designed by a gentleman called Nathaniel Cook and then publicly endorsed by Howard Staunton the best chess player in the world at that time ! A truly extraordinary work now produced here in Tasmania from Distinctive Tasmanian Timber by Chris.
There will only ever be ONE of these complete sets as it is not a limited edition but a single edition. We will produce more Chess sets and boards but they will never be the same we guarantee it.
