Chess Supply Company, The House of Staunton, Discusses the Different Materials Used To Produce their Custom Chess Boards

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Chess board manufacturer, The House of Staunton, shares details about the materials used to produce their custom boards.

The House of Staunton is a leading provider of chess boards. Their quality boards combine beauty and functionality. And, the array of materials they use to create the boards ensures there's an option for every need and budget. They share additional details about these materials and the chess boards that are made from them:

Custom Regulation Vinyl Tournament Chess Boards. These boards offer players of all levels a board that can be branded with any design or logo. The boards can also be rolled up for easy storage, and they resist tears and spills. The House of Staunton has selected vinyl as the material of choice for these boards because vinyl is durable, waterproof, and easy to clean.  Silkscreened vinyl boards are also available.

Custom Contemporary Chess Boards. The Custom Contemporary Chess Boards are made in the U.S. from different types of wood. For example, chess players can select a custom board made from purpleheart and maple burl, purpleheart and curly maple, or African palisander and maple burl. The color pairings create a beautiful contrast between the dark and light squares on each board. And, each wood offers a unique touch:

  • Purpleheart: purpleheart is found in the rainforests of Brazil and Guyana. It's a dense wood, and it's water-resistant. When these trees are cut, their heartwood turns from brown to purple. Exposure to UV light darkens the vibrant purple color of the wood to a chocolate-purple. But, finishing minimizes the intensity of the color change. Custom chess boards made from purplewood have a stunning, unique purple color and capture a lot of attention.
  • Maple: Most people are familiar with maple. Maple is used to create beautiful, high-quality furniture, home décor, and chess boards. Chess boards made from maple have a reddish-brownish color.
  • African Palisander: African palisander wood is a decorative wood that closely resembles rosewood. The rich, dark hues evident in this wood beautifully accentuate your custom chess board.
