- THE STUNNING BEAUTY OF TEAK: There is nothing as beautiful as the incredible range of colors in teak. This magnificent set is sealed in a medium brown and dark brown stain and treated with high gloss polyurethane. The thick stains help protect the pieces from the effects of the sun. The full range of colors is visible through the medium stain, and the wood grain is clear through the darker stain.
- THE INCREDIBLE DETAIL OF HAND-CARVED HARDWOOD: The beauty of a giant chess set comes from the level of detail hand carved into each giant chess piece. The sharply defined cross on the King. The points on the Queen's crown. The sharp, deep cut on the hat of the Bishop. The incredible detail of the mane, ears, and the downward snout of the Knight. The high-rising tines of the Rook. As you look at the details of this set, remember that each detail was crafted by hand!
- CARE AND MAINTENANCE: Teak is one of earth's most weatherproof and toughest woods. Like any wood product left outdoors, your chess set must be cared for to last. Although we have cured the teak for a year before carving, it will continue to cure in your first year of ownership. While curing, protect the set from direct sun when not in use. By immediately repairing any nicks or cracks, your set will age beautifully. This set comes with felt-covered bases.
- COMMERCIAL OR RESIDENTIAL: This king-size yard chess set can be displayed anywhere - big open floors, backyards, parties, campgrounds, shopping malls, schools, university and corporate campuses, cruise ships, local parks, museums - for groups of people to enjoy the complex and entertaining strategy implementation in a game of chess. Chess can become a communal experience and bring together family and friends when played out in the open on a lifesize set.
- MEGACHESS QUALITY: Each MegaChess item is meticulously handcrafted by artisans to ensure it maintains its appearance and integrity in all weather conditions and with frequent long-term use. We have been manufacturing large chess and checkers sets, boards, mats, and other accessories using the highest quality standards since 2002.

Our Teak Chess Set with a 12-inch King is very popular for indoor use. Note this set comes with felt-covered bases. If you are going to use this set outdoors and leave the set outdoors, you will want to change the base pads. In your initial year of ownership, you should protect the chess pieces from the sun when not used. Once completely cured, the set can stay out year-round and, with proper annual maintenance, will withstand the elements very well.
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 its density and internal resins.
This is the second smallest height of our seven teak chess sets. These pieces are suitable for play indoors or outdoors but are recommended for indoor play due to the felt pads on the bases of each piece.

This set is customizable. We can add your company logo to it or turn it into an LED set so that you can play with it all night long.
This set is perfect for high traffic areas including malls, resorts, campgrounds, cruise lines, schools, as well as backyards.
