Managed to get hold of an amazingly straight piece of olive wood from which I got 52 tiles with more or less the same grain. Piecing together and cutting up took a loooong time. All glued up on 18 mm ply with a wallnut frame to close the sides. Finnish in crude linseed oil mixed with varnish and then beeswax. Could be the top af a small table (60cm x 60 cm) or something to stick up on a wall.

This is end grain Queensland White Cedar… used to form the lid of a small box..
