Coney Island Boardwalk Wood
Famous Boardwalk Wood
Our boardwalk wood is New York City wood. It’s reclaimed from Coney Island, Far Rockaway, South Street Seaport and Atlantic City. The woods; Angelique, Ekki, Cumaru and Greenheart originated in Africa and South America.
The wood is very hard, heavy and resistant to insects, rot, decay, weather…and mustard, making it a natural for restaurants.This is rare material and we’re proud to help our customers reduce tropical deforestation.
Sizes range from 3-12″ wide and up to 20′ in length, depending on the species. Original weathered surface or milled to your specs.
Design with Boardwalk Wood
This boardwalk wood is Old Growth for sure. Look at the grain and feel the weight. This is perfect for decking, of course, but the colors are beautiful when indoors, too. This is special wood that ages well and is rare enough to be cherished. It’s some of the hardest wood in the world. If you can’t visit the jungle, then give its wood a place in your project.
Here is a small part of our boardwalk installation at the MIlan World’s Fair. Interior and exterior walks were created with 20,000 board feet of boardwalk. Next to that is the Brooklyn City Point’s Whole Foods dining area wall, made mostly of boardwalk wood. We’re one of the only suppliers of this treasure from South America in the 1950’s.
We have Cumaru, Greenheart, Ipe, Ekki, Azobe and Angelique species, from 3-12″ wide, 4″ thick, and up to 18′ long.
This is perfect for decking, siding, outdoor furniture and more, but the colors are beautiful when indoors, too. And they don’t weather.
This rare, special wood ages well and is cherished- as some of the hardest wood in the world. If you can’t visit the jungle, then give its wood a place in your project.
Here’s a bench of Angelique on Manhattan’s famous High Line park above the streets of New York City. There’s still some left at Coney Island!
