Looks like pine from here. I've resawn old beams on my mill before, the lumber is usually very nice with lots of character.

Looks like weathered pine to me as well. Betcha end up with a case of powder post beetles in the house. Watch for small sawdust piles.

Wouldn't that be the ultimate FU! :)

It is pine, but I did not resaw it.
They're pretty harmless, but the homeowner might freak out from the little sawdust piles. I quit using weathered wood that wasn't treated with borate or fumigated for just this reason. Fumigating is expensive.
