Propose this to Lazy Larry. He’ll be able to do it if it is possible.

So basically what I see is a 10 sided polygon.

There are only two basic shapes in your pattern (if I am looking at it right).
I believe this is doable.

it all has to be cut from the same specie of wood

and let the grain and example determine if the wood is cut right

Just 2 basic shapes, but keeping them together for a good tight fit during glue up seems a bit over the top to me. I doesn’t look like a way to cut strips and glue and re-cut and realign.

That was an interesting design and so I followed the link to read about it. Dust Bunny- the patterns are not repeating, though there are just the 2 basic shapes.
Personally, design-wise I think it would be better to have a repeating pattern. Looks more organized and satisfying to look at that way.
