I have some southern yellow pine that was cut down in 1855. It was floor joist sin a buddy’s house, that had to be replaced (foundation issues). It looks very similar too what you have there…

When just sitting, the sap has turned to something that looks like amber, but the minute you heat it up with sandpaper, it gets gummy. I have to be very judicious about cleaning sanding belts and disks. But, it makes great guitars! LOL

A sharp blade in a hand plane does wonders. Card scrapers work well too.
