I concur it does look like sweet gum.  It can be used to build with as long as it is not directly exposed to the elements.  I used to think that gum could only be used to make railroad ties after heavy chemical treatment with creosote. But we have used a few boards here and there in some of the old barns my father and I built over the years.
Tennessee is the place for me
