specialize in European Beech, Pacific coast Alder and
beetle kill pine which is often referred to as blue
stain pine or denim pine.
European or German Beech is grown in Germany's natural forests,
and is sustained-yield harvested under the toughest forestry
laws on earth. It's creamy brown color is beautiful when
finished with a clear top coat. It is extremely stable,
hard and durable with smooth texture and grain patterns.
Alder is a medium hardwood that comes from Oregon or
Washington. It's medium brown in color with extremely warm
grain patterns and is often compared to Appalachian cherry. It
has very dark or black character knots which imparts an aged
contrast to the wood.
The beetle kill (blue stain) pine
is harvested in the Rocky Mountain region. The Ponderosa or Lodge pole pine is usually
removed as standing dead timber before being kiln dried. The
pine bark beetle bores into the living tree resulting in
spectacular and completely
natural colors as the tree slowly dies. These colors
range from mostly blue-gray with specks of brown, red and
green. This creates
wood for very distinctive products that are guaranteed to be
unique. When available we can offer 100%
beetle kill pine from Colorado forests.
