I love beetle kill pine wood, not for the reason it exists (beetles devastating forests), but for the unique nature of the wood (blue stains…see previous post here).
While I built a few pieces using some beetle kill pine while I live in Colorado, now that I’m in the NW my supply is nonexistent. Still, it’s great to see what others are creating from it and you’re seeing it turn up everywhere from home furniture to businesses.
Checkout Azure Furniture Company in Denver for some great furniture using beetle kill pine. They just don’t include the skis.
