Wreckwood Game Board
 

A piece that belonged to William J. Parker, the carpenter on the CS Minia who is known to have created many of the most known Titanic wood treasures using flotsam he picked from the sea while on the recovery mission.

Other than the fact it was part of the Parker's collection, little is known about this particular piece of very hard Titanic wreckwood. A couple precision holes drilled on the side, along with the unique hardness, would leave one to believe this was once a piece of furniture. The craftsmanship is a little crude for the work that he is known for. It is more than likely a game or scoreboard crafted (not enough holes for cribbage) from another crew member and given to Mr. Parker.

This museum relic was obtained from world renowned Titanic expert/author/collector Steve Santini.
