Yea looks good to me . What did you use to glue them up . I bought some padauk today and the guy at the lumber yard said to wrap the glue surfaces with thinner to get the oils off .
Anyone have the link for this software ?

wrap with thinner?
I use titebond II,then after 30 mins, wipe away semi-dried glue with a chisel or scraper.
Once fully dry, i hand plane or chisel any stuck glue, then run through the planer for a clean finish.

I don’t think you can make a bad pattern. I mess them up too. but they still look pretty good.I made one today that didn’t look anything like I had envisioned. But, it still looks good. I like your pattern though. If you don’t say anything everyone will think its an original design.
