yeah, it doesn’t look like sapwood to me – that’s kind of a pale yellow. this looks like “rustic” quality stuff. the dark streaks look like some soft maple i had once. I guess a light version of what’s called ‘ambrosia maple” which is caused by light spalting. spalting can be very heavy, in which case you see really thick black lines, or very light, in which case they’re more like blue and in a pattern like what you’ve got.

in terms of quality, i dont know – there are no knots or cracks, and it looks pretty straight grained. it might be discounted (not sure how you got it) but I wouldnt think any less of this wood compared to regular cherry :-)
