Chippewa End Table
All of Snake Island Furniture's wood is sourced from trees slated for removal, including butternuts, black walnuts, burley cherry, Russian olive, and weeping willows. Usually these trees are chopped up and sent to a landfill, but instead a local arborist in contract with Snake Island carefully cuts large pieces of this "waste" wood and has it milled, dried and sent to a master cabinet maker.

Prices range from $750 for the Iroquois Small Wood Table (shown above) to $10,500 for a 12-person dining table. Prices vary depending on the size and type of wood available. All of the furniture is treated with a protective clear lacquer which can be cleaning with vinegar and water.
