Black and Yellow streaks...

  1. I just chopped some of the maple wood that I have around back. But in soem of the pieces I noticed some yellowish and black lines or streaks in it. Any ideas? Is it ok to use?

    i dont know exactly what they are but i use to use them the same way and am still alive..lol

    i use to get those streaks all the time when i cut up sugar maple in northern ontario
     
  3. Yeah thats where I live, so chances are its the same thing. The wood still smells nice, jsut didn't want to screw it up any.

    i actually think that the wood streaks are mineral deposits
