I vote water mark also. I recently had the same marks in some cherry I had stored in my shed. Like Clin my mark came out with a few shallow passes through the planer.

Thanks for the responses everyone, much appreciated.
I’m glad to hear it should plane out. Time to get to work.

This is a great forum!
