Lustables: Chalkboard Tablet

Jot this down: reclaimed oak and leather, chalkboard paint, natural tung oil.

Handmade in Philadelphia, this chalkboard tablet would be an excellent gift for the foodie in your life. This being the age of the foodie, surely you know one by now. Perhaps you’re living with one. (Perhaps you are one.)

Tablets, perfect for jotting down recipes and other culinary notes, are made from reclaimed oak (salvaged from discarded bleachers at Liberty High School in Philly), reclaimed leather sourced from WWII-era gun holsters, chalkboard paint and natural tung oil. Because of the nature of reclaimed wood, each piece is its own, though they all uniformly feature a hole for hanging or securing to an optional stand.

Price: $22.00 from Branch Home.
