Folding inlaid poplar burl backgammon set, naturally colored with ribbon inlay

Rating is 0.0 out of five stars based on reviews

    A beautifully designed backgammon display piece, a durable family heirloom, and a fun and easy to play set, in one 20" folding and locking package.


    A beautifully designed backgammon set and display piece, featuring a centerpiece of bright, tightly burled poplar burl veneer. Whorls of burl in the wood catch and scatter light through their grain, creating ripples of light that dance whenever you move your head or the set. Poplar veneer makes up the majority of the outside of the set, and covers all of the playing surface besides the maple and walnut wood points inside. Features delicately inlaid zig-zagging slivers of poplar wood decoration on the top and bottom lid, designed to catch the light and sparkle when the set is not in use.


    A long-lasting family heirloom, designed with thick and easy to clean piano-quality lacquer. Your family will have a high-quality and beauiful playing piece for lifetimes. The set is 1/4 inch thick at its thinnest and almost an inch at its thickest, and weighs just over 8 pounds. Inlaid magnets hold the set closed while not playing, and a lock with decorative metal key and tassel will make sure the interior stays closed & protected during travel.


    A backgammon play set designed for ease of play. Thick lacquer protects the set body from damage, and provides a low-friction playing surface for sliding chips across. Walnut and maple points are inlaid into the playing surface and are based with rounded chip bays, carved just shallow enough to slide chips in and out with ease. 1.2 gram chips mean that pieces won't go flying when an errant die or jostle bumps them. Set comes with two plastic dice cups, four dice, a doubling cube and a maroon tassled key.
