This is a perfect example of too much time on my hands and too much imagination. I laminated 2 – 24” boards consisting of walnut, oak, butternut and beetle kill pine. The boards were duplicates with the exception of wood placement.
Each board was 24” x 6 1/4 ” x nearly an inch thick. The thickness was necessary because of anticipated planing them 3 or 4 times. Each board ended up just under 3/4” when finished.
As you can see there was an awful lot of glueing, plenty of sawing on the band saw as well as the table saw. The squiggly cuts were made on the band saw and all of the cross cuts were cut on the table saw.
They are finished with mineral oil/beeswax finish. It seemed quite a chore but I managed to squeeze the mixture into the hole that accepts the are as well as the groove for the wire. I did that in my feeble attempt to attain some life span for a vulnerable item.

These came out very nice with the wavey patterns. Where did you get the wire slicer device?

Good looking boards Dick, I’m going to have to give that a try one of these days. I’ve got more projects in line – hopefully I will get to all of them :-)

Looking back at them, are the endgrain joints just glued, or did you use biscuits or some such to reinforce?

No biscuits, just an 80 tooth cut edge on the table saw, glue and clamped end, top and bottom. Left over night to dry and dropped a couple time on concrete floor for stress test. None of them came apart. probably wouldn’t work on a 48” board but it works just fine on 10”

Now these are superb. I enjoyed just looking without reading for a moment, trying to figure out how you did it. Excellent!
