Looks like punky, totally rotten, Phythophtera- infested spruce or pine. 100% rot. You don't need that fungus crap up your nose and into your lungs. Ever.

Don't look like rot to me or crap. Looks cool.

Yeah, I know. It does look elegant.
There's a fungus among us.

Buttonwood? Or on second thought, maybe lacewood.

If you can take a stab at the species, Phinds has a terrific site with lots of pictures.

This does not look like lacewood to me. I have some lacewood and the grain does not have the white spots.

I do not have any better suggestions than earlier replies though.
