Sinker Pine

We currently have a unique beam product called sinker pine. These beams are old-growth longleaf pine that served as dry docks in the Mobile Bay during WWII, used for the construction, maintenance, and repair of ships and boats. After WWII, the city of Mobile chose to sink these beams as they were no longer needed. In 2005, we had the opportunity to dredge the beams out of the harbor. Because the beams were submerged in salt water for 60 years, the coloring is unlike any other. They carry unique shades of rust, browns, and greens.
