Like I said, framing lumber! LOL

I would never frame a house with sweet gum. In addition to being weak, it twists, cups and bows even after it is kiln dried. It isn’t any good for firewood either because it burns so poorly and has such a small heat content. As my FIL used to say, you can’t burn sweet gum but if you build a really hot fire, you can melt it a little around the edges.
