Chess Pieces

Chess is a game that has been played for centuries. Throughout that time, the 64 pieces were either carved or turned. The materials used were often ivory and wood.

You can turn your own chess set to make a custom set which will be unique! And you can select any variety of materials or woods so your set is a one-of-a-kind heirloom!
