In 2015, Joseph Muller, proprietor of Wildwood Bespoke, commissioned a 15 foot long set of countertops for the wet-bar of his downtown Portland, Oregon tailoring studio and showroom.

Offering a client a scotch while having his or her measurements taken is all part of the experience of creating bespoke suits, shirts, and sweaters for his clients. Custom to the showroom’s style, an end-grain butcher block centerpiece in walnut and maple is accompanied on either side by two curly maple tops.

Later in 2016, an additional commission, the “Wildwood Block” cutting board was also developed to mirror the proportions and design of the original countertop, sold exclusively through Wildwood & Company, the boutique store that accompanies his tailoring business.
