The mind behind these fantastic pieces of wooden furniture is Kurt Eichorn. He is committed to supplying exceptional quality, eco-friendly, boat wood furniture exclusively to highly qualified dealerships of exceptional furniture and related boat or nautically influenced accessories. Kurt purchases no longer seaworthy fishing boats to make his furniture from. The boats were built by master Indonesian craftsmen, using time-honoured traditional building techniques and locally sourced materials. These retired boats were once beautiful and important tools for the fishing communities. Over time, connectors rust, steel fails, and adhesive joints become loose, while the wood itself stays strong. These boats then become too weak to survive the punishing seas and exhausting schedules. When that time comes, fishermen all over the Indonesian archipelago turn to Kurt, who purchases their old boats and recycles them into something beautiful.
