It is just the natural resin coming out of the wood and drying. Pretty common with conifers especially in the end grain of freshly cut wood. Sometimes it looks more like beads. You can probably just scrape them off but mineral spirits may help dissolve them so you can wipe it off.

EDIT: You can also try denatured alcohol it you don want to put MS on it. DNA may actually work better.

-- Nathan, TX -- Hire the lazy man. He may not do as much work but that's because he will find a better way.

Have your say...
