    Making words out of upcycled wooden letters can make a very attractive sign for your home.  These letters are particularly appealing as they are recycled from old Indonesian fishing boats, which gives them a beautiful weathered finish.  Each letter is handmade and may well have several layers of paint from years of repairs and maintenance by the fishermen.

    As each letter is individually made from old painted wood, no two letters are ever the same.  Some are made from wood that is very worn and weathered and some from wood that has survived the ravages of the sea better.  There is also a wide range of colours.  If you have a preference please give us a ring.

    These letters are designed for wall hanging in your home rather than being free standing.  Each letter has a small fixing on the back that can be used to hang the letter from a nail or hook.

    In addition to the word HOME, we also have the word SHED made out of the same wood. 

    The price is for all four letters.  The height of the letters is 19cm.

    Making wooden letters from fishing boats

    Indonesia has at least 15,000 islands and more than 500,000 fishing boats, so its not surprising there are a great many old wooden boats that are no longer sea worthy that the fishermen need to find a good use for.  The boats or perahus are made of local hard wood and are invariably brightly painted to make them stand out amongst the 100s of other fishing boats.

    Once a boat has reached the end of its life, if the boat timbers haven’t rotted or been too badly damaged they can be upcycled into colourful, weathered items of furniture or letters, each one of which is unique and immensely characterful.

    By upcycling the boat timbers into letters and furniture the local fishermen and craftsmen of Indonesia are able to earn additional income.
