Liberty Ship Hatch Cover Table – made from a hatch cover from the Liberty transport ships from WWII. The tops were made from fir or pine, and the base is made from some reclaimed white pine that came from an old warehouse demolish in Canada. The stretcher is reclaimed Louisiana cypress. The finish is nothing more than a linseed oil blend, which helps to bring out the true color of the wood, with the dead flat look.

The photo setup is awesome. I like the rusted abused look. Good choice with the finish too.

Bent,
I found the hatch covers on ebay back in ‘02. The seller had purchased them from a warehouse owner in Mobile, Alabama, who had stored them for an unknown period of time. The story is that they had been salvaged near the Mobile port where some of the ships were decomissioned and dismantled. I have about 4 more left to build tables with.

Thanks all for the compliments.
