It’s beautiful wood and the white looks a lot like when the pores on open grain woods like Elm and Oak are purposely filled with white wax to give the same effect. It’s a technique known as ‘liming’. I guess lime was use in the past, perhaps mixed with wax to make it spreadable. Personally I like that effect and I believe it adds interest to the grain.
