The live edge platform feature BLUE BEETLE PINE … Blue Beetle Pine??? … So you ask me “MAO What is Blue Beetle Pine” Surely you jest …

BLUE BEETLE WOOD … one of a kind!
Once beetles get under the bark; they deposit eggs that hatch into larvae, which block water flow and cut off nutrients, killing the tree and leaving behind a fungus, which stains the wood in inky streaks that range from grayish-blue to indigo.
But over the past few years, a group of artisans and craftsmen have appeared, mostly in Colorado, designing everything from high-end furniture to skis to iPad cases out of the blue wood. One investor has plans to build a ski resort in the Rocky Mountains, with a lodge and houses made entirely out of blue, beetle-chewed wood.

And who would have thought.


A true MAO original.
