Credit to LJ Degoose for the tutorial. This is my effort that I finally finished to give as a gift to a friend for 50th birthday. Timber is Rimu, Camphor and I am not sure what the middle darker timber is, chosen for its colour contrast. This was fun, fitted it in between family comitments, and came up with a home made 2D clamp solution using a couple of car scissor jacks (see last photo). The 2 D clamp helps keep the bevel cut boards straight when clamping.

Photo 3 shows some other boards that I am making for our kids school gala and sale day.

Thanks for looking, comments welcome. Thanks again Degoose.

Lovely warm colors, the arrangement to produce the ‘wave pattern’ is just outstanding!
thanks for sharing it with us.
