framing defect please help

Does anyone know what this might be? It is like crystalized sap.

It is part of the tree…a knot, branch, etc.

Nothing to worry about.

Like Larry said.

Looks like #3 common framing lumber or #4 common.
Not a good grade lumber for Fiber Stress loading. But won’t go anywhere. :slight_smile:

Not a defect as far as i am concerned, if no deflection, cracking, etc. is observed.

big azz knot as others have said…common…

Knots can indeed present a structural problem depending on the size and spans that are used however in this case the purlins below make it a moot point.
