Imagine how striking this would be if you had made an end grain board this these same woods and sequence. Crosscut the board you show and put them back together. Roll each new piece 90 degrees. Now flip every other piece end-for-end. It’s worth the trouble to get such patterns like Persian or Navajo rugs. Plus, the end grain boards will wear much, much longer with no slices which face grain boards develop.

You’ll have fun, which is nice.

looks great! Just out of curiosity- is Padauk considered food-safe? I have a couple extra strips laying around and not sure what to use them for….

I use Padauk as accent pieces in cutting boards all the time. The only woods you shouldn’t use are the soft or open pore woods
