Ebonising is a wood working technique designed to create the rich smooth lines and textures of the rare and exotic ebony wood - without the cost! The finish is smooth and polished and feels beautiful to the touch.
Not all timbers are suitable for ebonising. Ash, White Maple and Boxwood are all ideal woods for this process. Our Monarch Chess Sets is free from Burrs, splits ande cracks so common in lesser quality chess sets.
