matching end tables made from beetle killed pine, unfinished. Haven’t found a finish yet that doesn’t turn the blue brown…any suggestions??

Nice tables. I tried wipe on poly on beetle wood but it turned it kind of grey, so I’m interest to find out what would make the blue stand out as well.

Nice table, I’ve got no clue on how to finish, sorry.

I used Seal Coat dewaxed shellac on my bandsaw box. It kept it a grayish blue color.
