Over the years, we’ve used some really neat reclaimed wood with interesting histories. But this is possibly the most incredible wood to date. It’s the teak deck from a battleship that fought in World War II! We’ve made a few desks & tables with it and would love to make the perfect pieces of furniture for you as well. Here is a little information about the ship: Construction of the ship began in 1916 (almost 100 years ago!) and it was completed in 1919. She was sunk in the attack of Pearl Harbor at her mooring in battleship row and then salvaged and reconstructed to serve for the remainder of World War II. The ship was decommissioned in 1947 and scrapped in 1959. Luckily, someone was smart enough to store a very limited amount of the wood which is what I’m now using to build a few select pieces of furniture. If you’re a history buff or if you have a family member or know someone that fought in World War II on this battleship, I could not imagine a more perfect piece of furniture. Knowing that they walked on the deck of the ship that this wood is from – simply amazing.
Are you a history buff? We’re making pieces with reclaimed teak from the USS California battleship!
