Chess Board possibly made for Hercules!???

I enjoy collecting chess boards, and this little fellow 9inches x 9 inches, has just about the craziest construction of any  boards in my collection.  A tough looking fellow, which I am certain that passed every health & safety demand in the building industry today – try counting the number of screws around the sides – about 20!!

As it might even take the weight of an elephant, a CCI member dropped around to my home and could not stop laughing as we discussed its construction.

I like this little toughie, and bar a few bumps it is in great nick and my best guess is it’s pre-WW2 and it was purchased on E Bay some months ago.

    Having read this I believed it was extremely enlightening.

    I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this article together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worth it!
