Olive tree is known as the Tree of Life due to its benefits for the mankind from ancient times up to nowadays. Olive wood is very hard, strong and long-lasting. Heartwood is a cream or yellowish brown, with darker brown wavy grains.  The handcrafted Olive Backgammon with side racks is available in 3 sizes.  The playing field is a combination of olive wood with wenge & mahogany points. 

The Olive tree boasts a cultural history that reaches back to antiquity. It is a very solid, hard and long-lasting wood and has an understated texture, streaked with brown veins and softened by cloud-shaped flecks. Olive burl is highly prized for its turbulent markings and striking golden brown color contrasts. 
It's known for over 7000 years and has a symbolic connotations in cultures around the world. The olive branch was often a symbol of abundance, glory and peace. The leafy branches of the olive tree were ritually offered to deities and powerful figures as emblems of benediction and purification, and they were used to crown the victors of friendly games and bloody wars. Over the years, the olive has been the symbol of peace, wisdom, glory, fertility, power and purity.

This backgammon is handmade using the art of marquetry (also spelled as marqueterie) which is the art and craft of applying pieces of veneer to a structure to form decorative patterns and designs.
Our skillful staff use this method in order to create the interior design of the backgammon.

Olive wood checkers

I actually gave the board as a birthday present, as I had received a Walnut board previously as a present myself, and I just thought it is a work of art. I couldn’t recommend them more highly, thank you.

Υπέροχη Δουλειά

Αφού έμαθα να παίζω τάβλι στα 31, πρόσφατα, κατάλαβα γιατί είναι στο καφενείο του χωριού οι παππούδες με τις ώρες! Όποτε αποφάσισα να αγοράσω κι γω ένα. Η τιμή προφανώς τσιμπά αλλά πόσες φορές αγοράζει κανείς τάβλι; Έτσι πηρα από τον Μανόπουλο και έχω να πω ποτό είναι εξαιρετική δουλειά. Συστήνω και την ταμπέλα! Η αποστολή Σουηδία ήτανε γρήγορη και γενικά η όλη εμπειρία με την ενημέρωση για την παραγγελία, παράδοση αλλά και το υπέροχο τάβλι με έχουν αφήσει ικανοποιημένο.
