Possibly born in the wrong era, Craig has always been drawn to the natural lore of aging things, and fascinated by the unassuming objects of industrial origin. With a background in trades, in 2005 Craig took a job working with a rustic log cabin furniture maker and immediately discovered a passion for handcrafted furniture. In particular, furniture made from good wood. Through this union of two interests, Union Wood Company was born. Craig scoured local sites for the best old-growth wood, and then allowed the design be inspired by the character of the reclaimed wood. The rest, as they say, is history.
Union Wood Co’s success is a direct result of the team involved in every aspect of our business. We proudly employ a crew of incredibly skilled craftspeople and staff to sell, design and execute our products. We’re picky about our people just like we’re picky about our wood: Each member is here based on his or her skill, positive vibe, creative background and aesthetic. We all share a love for high quality, honest design. We also work closely with local manufacturers and suppliers who share our appreciation for the creation of simple, quality-built goods.
Every team needs a mascot, right? Otis eagerly anticipates every visitor and will no doubt greet anyone who makes eye contact. Otis has grown up in the woodshop and you can often find him catching some rays or curled up in front of the wood burning stove while on his work break. We apologize in advance for any dusty paw prints he may leave on you when he welcomes you to the shop.
