Jotting notes just got a whole lot more fun. How many times have you reached for a pen and paper to jot down a phone message and come up empty handed? Here is a wise and stylish solution to the problem -- Peg and Awl's chalk tablet and stand.
This perfect list-sized tablet will replace any number of scraps on desktops, refrigerators, bedside tables, et cetera. Available with or without a tablet stand. Made from reclaimed oak from the 1800s - early 1900s, reclaimed black leather from early 1900s gun slings, and finished with chalkboard paint. Although the board is sanded smooth, it may still 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 beveled.
Please note: Due to the nature of the materials used, each tablet will vary slightly.
Details: There is a hole in the top of the tablet for hanging or connecting to the tablet stand.
Made in Philadelphia
Peg & Awl husband and wife team, Margeaux and Walter Kent, live and work in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They are inspired by the belief that you can repurpose goods to make amazing, functional and useful new products. "Our work is made from olde things, treasures found and recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual, the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and built into wearable curiosities, inscribable keepsakes and useable, longlasting treasures," says Margeaux. "We used to make them for ourselves and now we make them for everyone."
When Walter Kent returned from Iraq, the National Guardsman was unsure what came next. He heard about an old barn that was being torn down and he was able to utilize much of the property that otherwise would have been discarded. With an adolescent experience of working with his father, a builder, Walter transformed the cast-off lumber into furniture and house wares. In jumped his wife Margeaux with the idea of reconfiguring old treasures into new keepsakes for the present and Peg & Awl was born!
