At J&S Reclaimed Wood Custom Furniture we are committed to building quality products that will suit your lifestyle and last a lifetime.
We salvage the wood ourselves: Our team dismantles old barns & structures, salvages wood from character building renovations, and breaks down shipping pallets to obtain the wood we use in our furniture and millwork. We work with care and can save up to 95% of the material in a structure, minimizing waste. All of the wood we use has a unique story and we can often tell you which building each piece came from, when the building was built and what part of the structure the wood came from.
Everything is made in-house: Our skilled team of craftsmen hand build everything in our South Vancouver workshop from start to finish. The woodwork, finishing, metal-work, leather-work and blacksmithing is all done by us, in-house.
We support other local businesses: We choose to support other local business by sourcing all of our finishes, supplies, materials, and equipment from other locally owned companies and small businesses instead of shopping online for the cheapest deal. You can rest easy knowing that every purchase you make is being directly funnelled back into the local economy.
Our Design: We mix modern lines with reclaimed materials to make our designs timeless. The Eco-Friendly finishes we use are durable and ensure our furniture can be used for everyday life. Every piece of furniture is engineered to fit your unique space.
100% Custom: When we say custom we mean it! A lot of times custom means choosing between a few limited options, but not us! The design, size, colour, wood choice, sanding level, finish, and function are all up to you! At J&S we start with a blank slate and walk you through the design process until we bring your dream furniture piece to life.
Quality Materials: Our team only reclaims the best quality timbers. If you are looking for Live-Edge or other Canadian hardwoods we work with a private mill that sustainable harvests the highest quality properly seasoned timbers. Most of our hardware is made in house and if we can not make it, we source only the best from Lee Valley Tools.
Made in Canada Finishes: All of our finishes are Eco-Friendly, low Voc and Leed certified. They are applied by hand and not sprayed, reducing our consumption by half.
Properly seasoned wood : Our timbers are properly seasoned thanks to our onsite kiln. The J&S team monitors the moisture content to ensure the least movement occurs during natural seasonal moisture swings, making sure your new custom piece will adapt to its new home.
Furniture Re-fitment : Moving? Growing Family? No problem, we can resize your J&S piece of furniture to fit those life changes.
Sourcing Materials : If you are a fan of a certain species of wood or a material we do not have in stock, we can find it for you.
Carbon Foot Print: We care about our the environment and do our best to minimize the impact we have. Since we started almost six years ago, J&S has salvaged an estimated 120 tonnes of wood, keeping it out of the landfill. We also keep our own wood waste to a minimum, the stuff that is too small to be reused is offered as free fire wood for Vancouverites to use in their home fire places or for camping, our sawdust is picked up by local farmers for animal and garden bedding, and the nails we pull are all recycled as scrap metal.
