Collection of Custom Gifts

Although History Salvaged focus is in the creation of hand crafted pens and other items made from repurposing our Witness Wood® and other materials from Historic and Cultural sites, in order to bring our unique product to a broader market we have contracted with a leader in the process of laser engraving so that we can utilize every piece of Witness Wood® thus minimizing waste of these precious resources. This partnership has afforded History Salvaged to utilize the creativity of our designers, artists and artisans to create collections of custom gifts and particularly Ornaments and Magnets from our Witness Wood®. We are able to translate our graphic designs into ornaments, magnets and more, by expertly working the Witness Wood®, through a process that includes several washings and dryings, we then saw, sand and router the Witness Wood® before it is laser engraved, lacquered and even colored.

Ornaments and Magnets


History Salvaged is continually seeking out Witness Wood® and other materials that can be repurposed into fine quality handmade heirlooms. From time to time come into possession of items that we are either unable to repurpose or in a condition that we feel should be left intact. Therefore, we have decided to make those items or Relics available to our customers and collectors.

Although the occasions when we have Relics are infrequent we will list them in our store, please check them out as you may find something of interest.
