Chess is a demanding mistress...
Table a bit low i find to play a decent game of chess, no place to rest the elbows. :-)
I agree with Tiger. There needs to be enough space for scoresheets, all the captured pieces, a frosty beverage, a chess clock, and your wristwatch (which you remove and place on the table a la Kaspy when you've reached a won position). I believe you can get a nice custom board or table made here (no relation):http://www.customchess.com/
All the above, and it has to be strong enough to hold Julia Roberts.
Very important points you all make. Though I don't know about Julia Roberts... But still, this thing wouldn't look too bad in my living room :) BudMan, thanks for the link, very cool!
Think a lower broader sight-line might necessary for something hugemongous like that.BTW, I wouldn't discount the Julia Roberts angle its a strong selling point.
It is remarkable, rather valuable piece
