Douglas fir side grain countertops are built with the edge grain of the wood facing up in parallel strips typically measuring between 3/4″ and 1-1/4″. Side grain construction makes a hard and stable surface ideal for islands and countertops. Reclaimed Douglas fir colors vary from light rosy pinks, yellow-browns to dark amber reds and is set off by its remarkably straight, handsome grain. Some reclaimed marks may include nail holes, staining and surface checking. Countertops are made to order up to 3′ x 8′ (longer lengths available) with curving and shaping available upon request. On extra long pieces, sometimes it is necessary to include staggered butt joints which are bonded tightly together. FINSIHED with OSMO food grade toxic free finish.
