Great gift for the Woodworker
These are cool gifts as a whole or split them up into individual gifts. Bought as a gift for a woodworker.
Absolutely perfect! Beautifully crafted
I was looking for a chess set to replace a set that had been broken. We had purchased our original set whilst on holiday in Mexico back 2011. There is a slight colour variant to our original set but this is a perfect replacement to help me reminisce of such a happy time spent with my husband. And now I have a new set which I can now share with our children as well, teaching them how to play and making memories as a family. Thank you so much for this beautifully crafted set. The attention to detail is brilliant

Hand Crafted Marble Chinese Checker Game Set, "Colorful Contrast"$79.95
Richly veined marble adds a translucent contrast to deep rose marble and sleek black onyx. The three varied tones of natural stone unite in a colorful table game by the Sierra Family. Beautiful and unusual, it makes a wonderful gift.
The playing board is created from selected pieces of sectioned marble and onyx slabs. First they are cut with a diamond disk. At this stage, the disk is cooled with water so that the stone will not shatter. The design is then perfected with files before the pieces are polished to a glowing sheen. "For us, it is very important to give our clients the best in quality and originality, transforming stone into functional products - whether for diversion or decoration," Mireya Sierra tells us.
Stone sculpting is a traditional regional handicraft, and the Sierras are famous for the skill and the quality of their work. Because each piece is sculpted individually, there may exist slight variations in the color and grain pattern of the stone. The set includes 60 colored glass marbles.
