Long before the Waldo Canyon Fire was even a tiny spark in the woods, we knew there was a place for furniture made from our valued Colorado Forest Products. Waldo Canyon Collection is utilizing our valuable natural resources to create something good from something bad.
From day one, our philosophy here at Colorado Rock*N Logs and LogFurnitureHowTo[dot]com, has been all about using what we have, right here in Colorado, to do what we can, to make a positive difference around us. And it seems we are not the only ones who believe in these sustainable business practices.
The idea is simple; Allow everyone as many options as possible when ordering their hand crafted Waldo Canyon Collection furniture and rustic home decor. Because we know, when it comes to furniture, there are as many ways to make it as there are burnt trees in the Pike National Forest…
And this is why we are calling on our good friend, and fellow Colorado custom furniture maker, Kris Williams of Rocky Blue Woodworks, to step up and help us out on the Waldo Canyon Collection – from disaster to design.
Kris Williams is the owner and operator of Rocky Blue Woodworks. He has a bright, clean and modern 2,500 sqft shop located right up the Interstate in central Denver. Kris was taught carpentry at an early age by his father who was a life long Colorado home builder and carpenter.

Before transitioning into custom furniture, Kris spent over 14 years working as a skilled and trained, precision machinist in the Denver area.
In 2009 Kris noticed the beauty of the beetle kill pine and started hand crafting furniture from this valuable Colorado resource. Drawing from his extensive woodworking skills, he has created a style of furniture unique to the Denver area and is now happy to help us out with our Waldo Canyon Collection.
It’s an honor to have the opportunity to show folks some of the beautiful things that can be done with burnt logs harvested off the Waldo Canyon Fire burn area. These charred timbers still have all sorts of life to share…
