Mountain Pine beetle Projects

Our studio has been making extensive use of the wood felled by the mountain pine beetle in BC. Starting with 2″x4″s, we’ve been splitting, cutting, sanding, tumbling and polishing this unique material into a variety of shapes and finishes. It has gone into plinths, walls, tables and cabinets; it has been scuffed and finished and made into polished river rocks. You may have seen some of these products at Trade shows like IDS West in Vancouver or 100% Design in Tokyo. If not, take a look and see what can be done!

This Table is like a living sketch that was created as Jud first started working with the Pine Beetle wood.
