Salvaged wood

My friend Jacob managed to salvage this log from an old barn that was collapsing close to his summer house. It might be spruce, but I think it's fir. It's at least 150 years old, probably lot older. Grain is tight and the log appears to be straight.

I'm gonna split it to wedges along the grain, there ought to be quite a few soprano tops in it. Jacob wants some kind of tenor I think, but we'll see about that.
