Each premium hardwood chess board kit contains the boards needed to make your own DIY chess board at home. The kiln dried hardwood boards in each kit are surfaced-2-sides and have square edges. Pre-cut hardwood boards in this chess board kit make it easy for you to follow our finished design or allow you to add your own spin by creating a custom pattern for your DIY chess board. All you need to do is line up your desired pattern, grab your favorite tools and wood glue, and make a handmade wooden chess board. Our hardwood isn’t a finished thickness (hit or miss) and may still require you to flatten, plane, shape or sand your boards to fit your project. You can expect no splits, rotting or decay. For more information on each kit, including sizes and species, please see the drop downs below.
