Wow, that is so pretty that it hurt my eyes.  :o  My first glance said Sinker Pine and yes, it can be a booger to keep the blade clean and saw.

Looks like Damascus steel.
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

Very nice.

I've seen something similar one time in my life. It happens to be on the wall of the Lucky Lab in northwest Portland, OR. It's a doug-fir board that has very similar, crazy growth rings that defy an easy explanation.

I believe that is the prettiest piece of wood I have ever laid eyes on. To the point of inspiration.

Take steps to save steps.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.
