This set is very similar to our smaller chess sets with a Staunton design. MegaChess’ Teak Chess Sets are superior to any made in the world for the following reasons;
- The Teak used to craft the MegaChess Teak Chess Pieces is among the finest in the world.
- The long drying process and curing of this exquisite wood insures that it is durable and weather resistant and suitable for year round use.
- Sun resistant stain is applied to the chess pieces to enhance the beautify of the natural teak.
- We finish the chess pieces with high grade protective polyurethane to enhance the beauty of the chess pieces.
- We apply a grooved rubber base that keeps the teak out of puddles that may form on your chessboard in inclement weather.
- Every chess piece is handmade by experienced craftsman.
32 Beautifully hand carved chess pieces with the light side retaining it full natural color with a light, sun protecting stain and the dark color being stained to allow you to see the natural grains in this elegant wood.
This is the 2nd largest of our seven teak chess sets. These pieces are suitable for play indoors or outdoors. The 48” King is more than eleven times the size of a traditional chess set!
When planning a playing area, consider the minimum size of the square of a chessboard as the diameter of the base of the king (17"). That minimum would be a chessboard 11 feet and 4 inches on each side. Optimum would be 24" squares, which is also a standard for tile sizes, yielding a chessboard 16 feet on each side.
To transport the entire MT48 chess set, plan on about 70 cubic feet, which fills up the back half of a van.
Our Teak Chess Sets are not only beautiful, but they are strong and very durable! In fact teak is one of the toughest woods on the planet! It is particularly resistant to the elements, decay and insects due to it density and internal resins.
Our Teak Chess Sets are featured around the globe in some of the most exquisite resorts, country clubs, corporate settings, and backyards.
