Makassar Ebony

Nothing but the best: Macassar ebony is one of the most valuable types of wood in the world. Only 25% of the trunk is classed as high quality and can be used for the backgammon board. The remainder of the trunk is not valuable and is unattractive.

Lieb Manufaktur uses Macassar ebony from Indonesia which is up to 70 years old, which can be processed precisely because of its hardness and density of 0.9 - 1.3 kg/dm3 The high quality wood is incorporated into the interior of the game. Every single checker has its place in the specially made-to-measure storage compartment. The precision dice and the doubling cube are also stored in the side compartment..
