Amazing work!

I’d love to see a blog or tutorial on those wavy boards. Not that I will ever have time to make any, I’m just so darned curious at how to get all those wonderful curves.

You banded the 3D boards? Are they glued to a stable substrate like plywood or MDF?

Actually, the basic technique for the curves is that you make two identically sized boards. One is a lighter color, one darker. Then you stack them on top of each other, fix them so there is no movement and cut the curves with a bandsaw. If you can make the cut without the blade wandering or varying from exactly perpendicular you can then swap the pieces between the light board & dark board and the pieces will fit perfectly. You can then do your glue ups, restack the boards and repeat the process. These were experimental boards that I did to see if the process would work. I will be posting some more designs when I get them finished. Thx, everyone for the kind coments.
