History and Unique Features of Nautical Timbers

Nautical timbers are environmentally friendly materials produced from the clear-cutting of forests during the construction of deep water ports; they were utilized to build ballast and cribbage for big ships that explored the world from the period of 1940’s through the 1970’s.  The timbers were then gathered for firewood and stacked in a yard at the Los Angeles Port.

Nautical Timbers hardwood flooring is the ‘in’ thing for custom wine cellars.  Nautical Timbers hardwood flooring was actually recognized as the New Product of the Year by This Old House Magazine.  Originating in Asia, Africa and South America, nautical timbers are composed of more than 70 identified wood species with many still unidentified.

This material is a unique find because of the characteristic range of color and width. The natural patina and character of the timbers that developed over the years were preserved by re-sawing; the dimensional stability of the material was enhanced through Baltic Birch backing.
