This board started out as a concept that I did not quite understand, and after completion I ended up more confused as to why it works.
Started out with 2 inch thick curly maple 30×12, ripped down the middle into two pieces 6×30.
Center stripe inserted of 2 purple heart strips 1×2 x 30 and one central stripe of curly maple at 1×30 x 2.
A diagonal cut was made, Didn’t pay attention to what the angle was, probably should have made a note of that.
Made several identical strips and flipped every other one to form a zig zag patten
After glue up, reflattened the board and cut new diagonals in the zig zag pattern, the flipped every other one, making a kind of wavy zag.
Didn’t like the look of it, so I flipped every other two, and it came out pretty cool.
Still don’t understand why it works.
Hope you like it, sorry if the instructions are confusing, next time I will take pictures. Pictures are better.
