Beetle kiil pine is the new darling in the building industry. Just finished a house in which the entire ceiling was T&G beetle kill pine.
The bluish hue is from a fungus that forms in the tree after the beetles kill it.
So, I pretty much did nothing this summer concerning woodworking. However, in the last week I finally finished this project and am starting my next one. Wanted to show you how it turned out.
Pics only. It's late, and I don't have time for captions.
The finished product for my friend. The next one will be a 3 step one, but this one is going to be delivered to her next week. I love the choice of wood we did, and I love how the shellac brought out the chatoyance of the wood, especially the maple.
