About Straight Up Chess boards
  • Your Straight Up Chess vertical chessboard hangs on the wall like Art and is designed to play a casual game of chess as you pass by. Make your move, mark it with the "Last Move" marker and go on your way.
  • A Straight Up Chess board is not only a unique, one of a kind decoration but functional Art/decor for any Office, Man Cave, hallway, bedroom, family room or any room in the house.
  • The boards are manufactured and framed in my Omaha, Nebraska shop and they are guaranteed not to warp or crack.
  • The chess pieces set on narrow acrylic shelves which can be removed for cleaning and are replaceable if damaged. The slots cut in the boards for the shelves are cut within 1 to 2 thousand of an inch to provide a good fit.
  • Markers for "Last Move" and "Check/Checkmate" are included with every board.
Specs on this board
  • This board is designed for a 3" chess set, based on the tallest piece in the set. The spacing between the shelves is 3.25". The width of the individual tiles is 1.9".
  • Overall dimensions with this frame are 22 1/4" x 34 1/4".
  • Total weight with chess pieces is about 17 pounds. A wall hanger is included which is designed to hold 50 pounds in dry wall.
About the Chess Pieces
  • The chess pieces are my Block pieces with a traditional but very unique chess piece design. I make these chess pieces using white melamine particle board. I carve the piece design into the board and then paint it. It takes a good router bit, but there is no other material that allows me to consistently carve with such fine detail. Although the material is cheap, the pieces are more durable then any wooden, resin, marble and even some pewter chess sets that I have carried in the past.
Regarding the size options, as shown below
  • I make this board AND the chess pieces in 3 different sizes. You can select the size you want as you check out. The smaller sizes are at a discounted price. As stated above the overall size of the 3" board is 34.25x22.25". The overall size of the 2.5" board is 30.25x20.25" and for the 2" board 26.25x19.25". The chess pieces follow the board, 3", 2.5" and 2" sizes.
  • If you would like to make changes to the Board, frame or pieces as shown here, go to the menu click on Straight Up Chess boards and go to 'Build Your Custom Board'. There you can select the board background and frame and add that to your cart. Then go to the Chess Piece menu and select the chess pieces based on the board background you choose. There you will see all the chess piece options that should look good on your board and add them to your cart.
  • If you already have your own chess pieces and would like a custom board built around your set, click on 'Straight Up Chess boards' on the menu and go to 'Build Your Custom Board'. Select the board background, frame and size. Boards can be customized to fit 2" to 4.5" chess pieces.
