It's Michael Appreciation Day at Sustainable Northwest Wood. Michael is our awesome and talented warehouse manager who is always building us pretty things out of our wood: Samples, flooring displays, and now this beautiful table.
Michael gathered scraps of our Willamette Valley Walnut, Big Leaf Maple, Myrtle, and Doug fir and laminated strips together to make the butcher-block-style top, which was then sanded and finished with Osmo Polyx-Oil.
The legs are made out of Clear Vertical Grain Doug fir with a coat of Osmo One Coat Only in Rosewood, which adds depth and dimension while still allowing the grain of the fir to pop.
We love our new table, the perfect place for our juniper planter and business cards and the perfect way to showcase our local, sustainable woods. Thanks, Michael, for your good work!
Here's a larger shot for your ogling pleasure:
Craftsman Design and Renovation, an award-winning Portland design-and-build firm, recently completed this beautiful historic kitchen remodel. One of the project's challenges was finding flat-sawn fir that would match the home's existing original wood trim.
Luckily, the design team at Craftsman called Sustainable Northwest Wood, and we were able to provide them with the authentic flat-sawn look they needed to perfectly match the existing trim (see photos below).
However, they didn't want just any anonymous commodity lumber for this project -- they specified super-selectively harvested, FSC Pure wood from a Girl Scout camp just 20 miles outside of the city.
This FSC certified wood was cut through restorative forestry overseen by the folks at Trout Mountain Forestry.
What's hotter that the pizza at Sizzle Pie's new location on West Burnside?
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!
