The hardest part of this was glueing up.
I used good strong rubber bands to glue three sections at a time, then bigger bands for the next level.
Patience is a virtue.
The smaller the segments the better the effect.
I used Black American Walnut, Hard Maple and Red Cabbage Bark (an Australian timber.
I’ve posted some long grain boards too. All natural colours.

I have always loved these (3D boards) and never made one… just have to keep bringing that to the top (or close) of the bucket list

Nice job! I like it. I have to do one of these soon. Here is a video of how to make a 3D board without using rubber bands to glue up.

Beautiful boards. I like to se so many different wood types and various patterns. 3D is awsome.

Thanks Brian.
I may give that a go next time.
I’m in the middle of a bandsaw box at the moment.
Never tried one before but got the idea from Lumberjocks.
Merry Christmas all.
