The Catamount Forest is managed as a working forest; and harvesting of trees takes place to remove hazard trees along trails, to improve forest health and to produce value-added products made from wood grown on the property. We work with local furniture makers to produce custom-made hardwood stools and other products from maple and black cherry wood grown in the sustainably managed forest. We also make other products, including birch candle holders.
Custom-made furniture, as used in Catamount Lodge, is available to purchase directly from Catamount Lodge & Forest LLC. A selection of the hardwood stools and other items also are usually available at The TAUNY Center on Main Street in Canton.
Amish-made stools, in limited quantity, are typically available for immediate delivery or shipping; but all other furniture and large quantities usually have to be ordered. Inquiries, including cost to deliver nearby or ship otherwise, should be sent to our e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Inquiries about other custom-made furniture, such as tables and chairs, also are welcome.
More information is provided below about the stools and other products, including the order form for purchasing stools and some other products directly from us. Forms, in PDF format, should be printed to fill out and send to the address given. If you have trouble opening the documents, then please contact us.

The sturdy stools -- available in the following 3 heights -- are made locally by Amish furniture makers, the Hershbergers, in Heuvelton, New York.

Birch Candle Holders
Sets of 3 birch candle holders are made from individually selected and harvested gray, yellow or black birch trees grown on the property. They are sawn and finished by us to varying heights. Each candle comes with a battery operated LED tealight.
A cluster of three candles, if purchased directly from us, costs $25 plus tax. A delivery fee or shipping & handling fee may be added if delivered or mailed. Trays also are available for an additional fee. Usually a selection of sets are available at The TAUNY Center Folkstore in Canton, New York.
We welcome inquiries about custom-made candle holders (e.g., singles with votives, larger sets with LED tealights, etc.).
Signs, like those marking Catamount trails, are made from reclaimed and weathered pressure treated pine decking boards with rounded top and bottom edges. Letters and numbers are added using an electric router and templates. More details about our custom-made rustic signs are available on the order form below.
