About Us

Currently in our sixth year, Salt Wood Co. is a seasoned team of woodworkers and artisans with a wealth of talent and experience. Our goal is to create rustic yet modern furniture that becomes a family heirloom using historic reclaimed wood. We are masters of finishes from organic materials, hand waxes, and oxidative processes that truly show the characteristics of each piece. Our team has a rare chemistry that leads to creativity and the desire to constantly explore ways to improve production and the esthetic of our pieces.

You'll love our handcrafted items made with reclaimed wood from a variety of sources, such as old hotels, barns, and other structures. We have harvested floor beams from the site of The Vendue Inn in downtown Charleston. The beams were part of a structure built in 1780 from old growth pine. We also picked up some heart pine barnwood from an old manufacturing plant in the South Carolina upstate. The structure was destined for destruction, but locals found the resources to offer it for repurposing. Now these and other repurposed wood can become a part of your home.

"Our mission is to fully realize that the wood we work with is appreciably older than we are. It deserves every bit of our time and patience to repurpose it in such a way that ensures it will last long after we are gone" - Vann Cochran, Owner of Salt Wood Company
