This unique design is an etched glass coffee table held up by 4 giant teak rooks. The tempered glass has 4-inch squares, a 2-inch clear border, and a 5-inch clear area for taken pieces, chess clock, drinks, or decorations.
The glass is 36" x 42" x .5" with rounded corners, and weighs 63 lbs. This is a substantial piece of tempered glass. The etched checkerboard is permanently sandblasted into the glass. The tempered glass chess board is quite sleek and incredibly strong. Tempered glass is much stronger than traditional glass products. In the unlikely case of the glass breaking, the safety glass breaks into small granular chunks rather than shards.
We have two options for the construction of this chessboard -
- For Children, the 4 rook option is the perfect table height of 20"
- For Adults, the popular choice is 4 bishops for a more comfortable 27" table height
Each Rook is 20" tall and 13" wide at the base, and weighs 30 lbs. They come with a rubber base for carpets or hard floors and can be shimmed individually for uneven floors.
Each Bishop is 27" tall and 13" wide at the base and weighs 27 lbs. They also come with a rubber base for carpets or hard floors and can be shimmed individually for uneven floors.
