Just showing us a picture of a plank of wood will do no good. If you don't know what it was made from, the best we can tell you is to try it out and hope for the best.

Why don't you just buy charcoal? I know is nice to know you made it yourself but in my country you can buy 3 kg of grill charcoal at 2 euros ( and I'm sure in every country is available) . All you need to do is smash the charcoal into fine pieces and is ready to go... Edited by AirsoftSmokeScreen

Grill charcoal will not end in very good powder, but it can be adequate. Look for single wood brands e.g. made from beech.

 

Your piece to me looks like a conifer wood, probably spruce. Same here.

 

Buying charcoal should be an option given only 15% by weight are required for BP. So even a few kilograms can last a while.

balsa is good for break but i wont waste it on lift its too expensive when free wood will do.

i dont know what wood that is but.... If you can scratch it easilly with your fingernails and it has large growth rings it may be suitable. I use bed slats for some of my charcoal ( stars ) i think its pine but not sure, it marks easily and has large growth rings it also weighs very little... A good starting point.

Im trying to work out the suitability of an unknown wood based on density, in most cases soft, light wood is ok for bp, one test batch is all it takes.

 

I say char it and find out, if you have never made charcoal you have a sacrificial piece of wood to try with, if it makes poor bp it will make nice stars or prime.

 

Suprisingly and why i say this is because my unknown bed slat wood makes softer, lighter faster charcoal than the willow i use, either way unless you have a good supply of it you cant repeat your results... Vitally important.

If you can get balsa for a good price, then I would say that is probably your best option.
