“From Standing to Branding”
We specialize in giving new life to dead, dying, diseased and hazardous trees by transforming them into timeless pieces of handcrafted furniture. We create heirloom pieces of furniture that can be passed on from generation to generation. At Hunski Hardwoods we do it all from salvaging, milling and building of each piece of custom furniture. Each piece comes with the actual story of the tree, which it was milled from, with most having pictured documentation of each harvest. That way you will know exactly where your table came from, why it needed to be removed and how it was removed and you can be rest assured that the tree was sustainably salvaged. Also you will have the story to tell your friends and family for decades to come. You can be confident knowing that your table actually came from a tree that needed to be salvaged, as opposed to clear cut just for the wood.
Each piece is one of a kind and will be branded with the Hunski Designs Logo. Remember if it doesn’t say HUNSKI, then it is just a copy!
