The Camaratta Signature Master Chess Table
- Product Review (submitted on September 25, 2017):
Bought this on a whim, lucky me. The color is natural brown, not red which is a huge plus as far as I am concerned. The semi gloss finish is perfect and not annoyingly reflective. The drawer is felt lined and large enough for 4.4" king sets and clock.
The build is remarkably classic and sturdy. This looks like a real piece of furniture that should cost hundreds of dollars more than I paid. The fit of the legs is very tight. I actually cut my legs to make it coffee table height and use it in my library.
Only flaws for me:
1-There is a channel around the board that will have to be vacuumed for cleaning.
2-No notation. Some like it some do not. Perhaps offer the table either way.
3-Drawer only on the player side. Would be nice to have the option of ordering the table with the drawer opening on a non player side.
BTW, when I got the delivery and saw the table was manufactured in China, I was apprehensive and did not open it for a day. The packaging was superb. The table perfect in every way. And it is heavy, very heavy as it is solid mahogany--I cut the legs remember?
One would not be embarrassed to display this table in any setting. Glad I bought it.
