Reclaimed Live Oak Pedestals
Salvaged from holding ponds in Boston’s historic Charlestown Navy Yard, our southern live oak timbers are available as-is, cut into board stock, or as custom-milled material. Harvested from the southern United States as shipbuilding components for the U.S.S. Constitution and other frigates, these timbers are nearly 500 years old. Weighing in at approximately 70 pounds per cubic foot, southern live oak is one of the world’s densest woods.
We’ve collected some shorter lengths of these timbers for people interested in using them as table pedestals, seating, and small tables. Also available, live oak “slices” that are about 4″ thick.
