Blue mold stain as far as I know is impossible to remove. sometimes if it is not too deep it can be sanded or plained away but sometimes it goes all the way thru. It is often caused by leaving the logs exposed to the elements in hot weather. Most pine mills in the North East try to produce the majority of their lumber between Sept. and May.
It can also be caused by miss handling the lumber after it is sawed.
Some folks think it looks good with a natural finish, I’m not in love with it but I like it better than dark minwax.
