Someone spent 5 weeks making a bespoke sphere chessboard -- which makes playing even harder

Someone has made a bespoke globe chessboard that has actually made playing the game much harder than it already is.

Ben Meyers made the squares out of walnut and maple, the rest of the globe is made from jatoba wood.

The globes would cost around £2360 to buy, but Ben doesn’t sell them as they take 5 weeks to make.
