John, Yes that is just Steve’s suggestion and would definitely work, and looks like something I should make anyway. I just seem to have a bias against end grain. I think I have to get over it.

Steven, I am looking for as realistic as I can make Reasonably.

cr1, I need to make certainly tens and possibly hundreds of these tiny segments so individual sand shading is not feasible. I’ve done enough of it to be very sure of that. However I haven’t completely passed on Paul’s idea about torch toasting the block prior to cutting. That sounds interesting.

Looks like I go back to the shop and work on some of these ideas.
