The far wall looks like beetle-kill pine, correct? Love it! What kind of stain did you use to bring out the blue so much?

Looks like you didn't get an answer. But I'm from an area in the Rockies where a lot of homes have been built from beetle kill. In my opinion this is the natural color of the milled lumber. A coating of something like varathane would bring out color and seal it.

Thank you for answering that question. Where would you find such a wood, if you would' t mind me asking?

Beetle kill, or Blue pine. Wherever there have been large beetle kills and there is a mill which uses that wood. The one I got my square milled logs from was in Oak Creek outside of Steamboat Springs.The pine beetle which causes such damage is located mostly in Rocky Mountains.
