I don’t know of another. Some woods have purplish hues to them, but based on typical organic structure, blue is not a common color. If you gave more info, we could probably provide some suggestions on how to accomplish whatever it may be.

You can find pine that has a bluish color to it. I do Intarsia and many who do it use it for the bluish coloring. It is not real intense but there are few choices outside of a dye.

Fungus will make lots of lighter colored woods look blue or gray.
