Read more about how the Cheese & Crackers Serving Board made the cut for the Uncommon Collection.

The Cheese & Crackers Serving Board was designed by UncommonGoods’ Product Development team, and produced by J.K. Adams. Our team's design responded to an apparent need to present an assortment of cheese and crackers in an organized and attractive way. The form of an ampersand presented a solution by providing the right distribution of spaces to organize the food. Our Product Development team collaborated with JK Adams to produce this concept in a high-quality maple board.

The J.K. Adams Company was founded in Dorset, VT in 1944, by Josiah Adams. In 1949, the Cooper family purchased the company and has owned it ever since. In the early years, the company produced wooden drafting equipment, slide rules, and surveying equipment. The company also did contract wood manufacturing and produced products such as wooden shoe shine boxes. As technology started to replace many of these products, the company started to design and manufacture cutting boards and other housewares. Some of the houseware innovations attributed to J.K. Adams are angled knife blocks, in-drawer knife racks and numerous innovative cutting board designs. The company now employs 48 people, many of whom have been with the company for over twenty years. The company has been from it founding and remains committed to operating in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.

            Comments about CHEESE & CRACKERS SERVING BOARD:

            This product is great for entertaining - it displays cheeses or other main food in the center and holds the crackers or small slices of breads together so they do not fall off or look just thrown on a plate in an '&' design. It just to cute - This is a gift but I am going to get one for myself too.

                    Comments about CHEESE & CRACKERS SERVING BOARD:

                    Was one of the most unique cheese platters I could find. This doesn't mean the most practical though as the indents and wood can make it somewhat more difficult to clean and dry. Also others come with little cheese knives and forks and sometimes even small little drawers for them. Consequently, one of my greatest gripes was that it was perhaps a bit on the expensive side. I think $40 would be more reasonable (bought it for $50).

                    So not the most practical, but definitely eye-catching and whimsical which makes for a great present. Plus, the crackers actually stand up very easily and the islands created by the ampersand keep everything organized. In short, your cheese platter will always look neat and interesting without much effort.

                    I loved the way this board looks. Unfortunately, when they say dry immediately after wash - listen! I received this board as a gift and it didn't cross my mind when my husband left it in the sink overnight. The board was a little wet and I found it the next day all bent in a u-shape with a moldy smell and had to toss it away. Wash and DRY IMMEDIATELY!
