Cory, This was made up by gluing 7’ (or longer) pieces together till I had a square 2 1/2” that I could trim on my table saw and sand on my thickness sander (homemade), when I had 4 blocks 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 X 7, I cut them into 5 pieces, ran those through the sander, randomly glued into a board and finally ran it through my thickness sander again and again and this is what I ended up with.
