Layton, Utah product design student Ben Meyers and his father spent several weeks creating a stunning, fully functioning wooden globe chessboard that features magnets embedded under the square to hold each chess piece in place.
This is a chess board that I made with my father. It is made out of Walnut, Soft Maple and Jatoba wood. It took several weeks to create and is 100% playable! Each ‘square’ has a magnet embedded in it, as does each chess piece for easy movement of the pieces. Quite an interesting spin on the game. Really does change the strategy.
