Folding inlaid shining poplar burl backgammon set, green with braided inlay


    Save yourself time and money: buy your backgammon play set, beautifully designed display piece, and collectible heirloom, in one simple purchase.


    A beautifully designed display piece, featuring tightly burled, green-stained poplar. The centerpiece of this set is a whorled poplar burl veneer that has been stained spring green and aqua, bordered with sunny orange-stained mahogany; this beautiful veneer makes up the majority of the outside of the set, and covers almost all of the playing surface. The whorls of burl catch and scatter the light through twisty grain, which creates ripples of sparkle whenever you move your head or the set. On the lid, mahogany also catches the light in its straight grain, and decorative braids of slivers of inlaid mahogany and hardwood also catch the light, contrasting glittering straight lines against whirling poplar burl.


    A collectible 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 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. Rosewood 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 boxwood checkers mean that pieces won't go flying when an errant die or jostle bumps them. Set comes with 30 checkers, two plastic dice cups, four dice, a doubling cube and a golden tassled key.
