To start I make a full size drawing of the board to see how it will look.

Make an endgrain blank in dark timber

Make an endgrain blank in light timber

Glue and clamp.
Plane or sand flat and level.
Join both blanks with double sided tape and mark out the curves and cut on the banksaw

Detach from tape and alternate light and dark.. insert a string of PH and SA glue and clamp.
Plane or sand flat and level and repeat the marking cutting , alternating the cut parts,stringing and glueing and clamping.

As you will have noticed you get two for one,.
Square up the board round the corners ease the edges and apply a finish.

Thanks for detailing your technique on this board, Larry. You make the process look pretty straight-forward.

It looks like there is an end to end seam running down through the middle of the finished product. It that true or just my imagination.

I also an guessing that this is all end grain showing, so the seam is not end to end but side to side.

Going to show my ignorance, but what is “a string of PH and SA”? That is the only part I did not follow. Thanks.
