Railtown’s Union Wood Co. makes a lot of awesome things (kickass aprons, an outdoor communal table for Boneta, boxes for Victory Gardens, seats for Wildebeest, and much more), so it was entirely appropriate for them to have someone else make something awesome for them. Check out their brand new “Go West” t-shirt, which was designed by Massachusetts artist Shane Swift. The hand-drawn work is now being screened on premium cotton T’s. You can grab your own either online or in the shop.

The GOODS from Union Wood & Supply Co.
Vancouver, BC | In the last few weeks over at Union Wood Company, and with the Christmas season’s custom furniture rush in full swing, there’s been a nice mix of goods arriving in the Railtown woodshop.
1) A super clean industrial dining table being the finishing touch on a condo in a repurposed church off Main St.
2) A hand painted sign salvaged from an auto shop on Clark St turned into a rugged side table
3) Patch-work style bed frame(yes with cubbies) put together using several sources of vintage barn wood from the Fraser Valley

About The Business
Founded in 2009, Union Wood & Supply Company is a retail and on-site furniture-making/interior design shop located in Strathcona North that specializes in vintage/industrial custom furnishing, antiques and home decor. Our multi-faceted custom furniture is designed to be simple, bold and true using materials mostly reclaimed and repurposed from salvage yards, antique stores, demolition sites and other sources. The curated items that we hand pick from all over the continent compliment the same Americana-inspired aesthetic. Every piece is vintage, man-made locally, or part of Union Wood Co’s unique product line. We don’t carry imports or reproductions, as these items lose the importance of the story connected with vintage pieces. We work closely with clients and designers who are similarly inspired by the simpler times of centuries past, but live in (and design for) today’s modern lofts and heritage homes. Our original works are for sale at our store, through our website, and at select retailers. Custom work is also available on commission.
