You are looking at a Liberty Ship Hatch Cover – Unfinished. This item we received from a man who lives in Chicago and was a collector of these liberty hatch covers for many years.
This is the exact hatch cover that you will be shipped – these are all listed individually now. Please note that this listing is for the hatch cover ONLY. We set it on top of a wood base so that it could be photographed easier.
This has not yet been finished or converted into any furniture. The perfect item for someone to purchase if they have a specific project in mind.
You maybe be wondering what a liberty hatch cover is. Liberty hatch covers (door) are the last true wooden hatch covers that were made specifically for the Liberty Ships in World War II. These were built into the floors of the ship. Liberty ships were built to be used as workhorses during the war, and only 2710 of these ships were built to serve this purpose.
