Wooden chess sets are nowadays set as the standard in modern chess. Their beauty and elegance, as well as the relatively ease of dealing with this material have been the main features which have prompted the wooden chess sets in the top of the most appreciated chess sets available on the market. Wood, one of the most beautiful materials found in abundance in nature can offer spectacular views for the human eye. The disposal of its fibres as well as their colour makes the chess pieces acquire unique sparkles which will enchant the players eyes. The diversity of wood types from which the sets are made can also contribute to the great appearance of a wooden set. By far the most spectacular wooden chess pieces are those combining the dark look of ebony with that bright yellow boxwood. Other spectacular combinations include rosewood and boxwood and natural and ebonised boxwood.
