This chalk pad will quickly replace your reminders scribbled on scraps of paper that always end up lost. Reminiscent of an old schoolhouse slate, it is great for grocery lists, sketches, messages and plans. Wee children can spill out their imaginations on this black board. It is a blank slate that is waiting to be filled.
Made from reclaimed wood - walnut, oak, maple, cedar &c. acquired in the trash/scrap of a local furniture maker's shop ( www.bddw.com), reclaimed black leather (WWII Spats, WWII Gun Holster, Early 1900s purse etc) and chalkboard paint. The board is sanded smooth though may show signs of the wood's prior use such as nail burn holes, nails, bug holes etc. The back and sides are finished with natural tung oil and the sides are beveled. There is a hole in the top for hanging.
Each pad comes with one Koh-I-Noor chalk pencil.*
