More blue-stained lodgepole pine made into a chest to be donated to charity. Advantages of using lodgepole, it seems a little harder than your typical pine/fir, its cheap and its readily available in your forest as dead and dying trees. Just visit your sawyer in the northwest and he probably know where to get some. Another advantage of using Lodgepole is, you don’t have to worry about your finish being blotchy because you want the color contrast to show through. So next time you come across a decent size lodgepole pine, look for coloring before sawing it up into firewood.
