Doug fir butcher block really pops at Sizzle Pie's new shop

By KC

What's hotter that the pizza at Sizzle Pie's new location on West Burnside?

The countertops!

The inimitable Garth Klipper at G. Steel Design Build built them out of Sustainable Northwest Wood's FSC Pure Douglas fir butcher block. 

The wood was sourced from the Mountaindale Outdoor Program Center, a Girl Scout property in North Plains, Oregon, where it was super-selectively harvested by Trout Mountain Forestry as part of a campaign to help restore old growth conditions to the forest. 

We love how the butcher block graces nearly every horizontal surface in the shop, from the cashier counter at the front to each of the dining tables and counters. 

Our sustainably-sourced fir was also used for trim elements throughout the space. 

Next time you're in the area, stop by for a delicious slice and check out this beautiful new installation of sustainable, local wood!
