bizarre, but beautiful. I would start glueing small stripes, cut in some angle, glue again an go on…

It looks like two, maybe three different woods, two of them being holly and walnut. It looks like there were only a few strips of holly in comparison to the walnut. The strips were probably cut on a bandsaw and in an asymetrical pattern. The strips were re-glued, uneven ends lining up in reverse. Process was repeated until the pattern was spread out. Pretty cool looking.
