MTM Wood boards ...

  • #21

    Yes that was my intent to give some aesthetic separation from the raised playing surface to the outer frame of the board being that the two main woods used in this board was maple and walnut. The bottom inner base with the cutout section is made of European oak.

    Really works of art! Hope anyone using them(or anything similar actually) get many years of pleasure.

    Italy has been making similar chessboards with more accuracy and higher quality wood for only $200-$300. It is called platform chessboard.

    Italian platform chessboards are the best in the world and the price also very reasonable. Customers can check ‘platform chessboard’ on internet.

    I did a web search of "supposed similar quality" Italian platform boards,at a lower price than the gorgeous MTM boards and found nothing it their class! Personally, I find the asking prices very fair.

    Hmm....MTM----- I did not know that "Mary Tyler Moore" was into  chess? -happy.png

    Very funny, I am guessing Maria (?) Tatyana Muntian - Andrei's wife.

    Search ‘platform chessboard’ in google and you will find dozens of amazing chessboards for very reasobable price.

    None seem to be in the class of the MTM's though and I "have" done a search.Some are pretty nice,but no cigar! Actually,my 21" Sheesham platform board from(dare I say it?) Chessbazaar is a beauty and well made/finished.I got a great buy on it last year......Still,as of now,if I add anymore boards it would definitely be an MTM! It would go nicely with a good NOJ set...Both top level products.

    Best platform chess is made in Italy. Regency chess and House of Staunton and Official Staunton sell them.

    These are my boards from MTM Wood. Andrei is amazing! I am selling the first board pictured if anyone is interested.

    They are amazing. I wish I would have bought one a year ago. Enjoy it.
