IOWA Deck Collection Planks
These are pieces of actual decking removed from the Battleship IOWA. Our volunteers painstakingly harvest the wood to preserve the patina, caulk and sometimes deck plug holes to retain the history, character, and uniqueness of the deck wood. The Iowa’s deck wood is unique in color and character as it has been weathered outdoors with decades in wet and dry conditions. The dark areas of the wood are where the deck has oxidized in contact with steel and water ebonizing the wood creating an unusual coloration unique to a battleship. Each piece is hand engraved identifying the origin of the piece. Style and size will vary as no two-pieces are alike. Each deck plank is sealed and finished satin smooth with 7 coats of hand-rubbed polyurethane for durability.
Each piece comes with a certificate of authenticity. Please enter a name for each certificate recipient. If ordering more than one and only provide one name, that name will be placed on all certificates within the order.
Available in size 12" medium and 16" large.
