The heart and soul of this chess board is the beautiful patterning of brown ash burl, contrasted by light erable. The swirly grain makes the board not only durable and practical to play with but also a beautiful piece of decor.
In this meticulously-fabricated veneer board the Spanish chess artisans have succeeded in combining an extremely striking appearance with a light weight.
The Cordoba board is a very good, medium-sized and affordlable classic chess board for any tournament-size pieces (King’s height about 3.75 inch). The square size is 5 cm (1.97″), so as long as your set has a base diagram of 1.4″ – 1.75″ (3.5 – 4.4 cm), you’re good to go!
Also available in 60 cm (square size 6.0 cm) size. See the Segovia Chess Board.
