Features reclaimed wine cork feet to keep them from slipping and scratching the table. Divided into four sections. Includes a piece of chalk. Handmade in Wisconsin.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

    Comments about RECLAIMED SLATE CHEESE BOARD:

    I ordered two ... one was fine, the other wasn't level. Received a replacement, which was missing one of its "feet." On the other hand, service with Uncommon Goods was great and more than satisfactory, and I will continue to do business with the company.

          Comments about RECLAIMED SLATE CHEESE BOARD:

          I love that it is so eclectic...smaller than I was expecting, even though the dimensions are listed. Poor packaging-foot was broken off and chalk was shattered. Overall happy, just wish I didn't have to fix & replace parts before giving it as a gift.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Booo-one of the cork feet was broken off and I had to buy all kinds of different glues because nothing would stick to the blackboard. Also, the chalk was broken into a million pieces so I had to buy more of that (this was bought as a gift). I have ordered other items from this site and have been AMAZED by how good the packaging was. This was terrible-not even bubble wrap-just brown paper wrapped a couple times around it! I'm surprised the chalkboard made it in one piece!

            This is adorable. I bought it for a foodie friend of mine and cannot wait to give it to her as a birthday gift. I've no doubt it will get many uses at her dinner parties.

              This board looks awesome - cute and different. I wish I were keeping it for myself instead of giving it away as a gift!

              Service and delivery comments:

              I ordered this gift for a friend in advance of her birthday. I selected the longest shipping since I was in no rush but it came two days later, packaged perfectly for protection and gift giving!

                      I ordered this as a gift for an employee, and was so thrilled at the quality when it arrived, I ended up ordering one for myself! Combined with a nice bottle of wine and some local cheeses, it was a perfect gift this year!
