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.

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.

Stunning!

Those boards would make great candidates to be resawn into veneer.
