Big Chess Set
Information on Chess Sets

Pieces
My chess pieces are hand made out of white pine. Each of the pieces have blue felt on the bottom. If you are going to leave the set out side the felt can be left off. The chess sets are made in my shop in my back yard, one piece at a time.  NOT  "Made In Japan".

Finish
The dark chess set is stained with Minwax® Jacobean (it is a dark brown). The light chess set is the natural color of white pine.

My chess sets have a clear, high gloss, durable finish for wood with exposure to sunlight, water or temperature changes. It is called Helmsman® Spar Urethane. It is made by Minwax®. It is specially formulated to withstand the worst environmental conditions. Minwax® Helmsman® Spar Urethane provides a finish that protects wood from the damages of rain and moisture. Special ultraviolet absorbers help protect  wood from the graying and fading effects of the sun. Minwax® Helmsman® Spar Urethane also contains special oils to help the finish expand and contract with wood as the seasons and the temperature change.

But no clear exterior finish will permanently protect wood against direct sun, snow, ice and rain. Be sure to check the finish annually to determine if it needs to be recoated. If the finish warrants, apply an additional coat of Minwax® Helmsman® according to the label directions.

Board
(FOR INSIDE) A black & white board can be purchased for $55.00. It is made out of 64, 12" x 12" self adhesive vinyl tiles, that can be applied to 2 sheets of 4'x 8' plywood. Or can be applied to any smooth flat surface

(FOR OUTSIDE) I recommend you use 12 inch by 12 inch cement tiles 2 inches thick. You can find these locally at home & garden centers like Lows, Home Depot and Wal-Mart. They are used for stepping stones in gardens and as walk ways. They come in different colors like white, brown and red. Use 2 different colors to make the chess board. I do not sell these because they would cost too much to ship.
