I made serving boards to go along with some end grain cuttings boards for a wedding gift. These are made out of cherry, maple, and purpleheart. This was my first attempt at creating a flowing line using the band saw and a thin strip of wood. It turned out well and the glue up came together nicely. I used salad bowl finish that was wiped on.

I took the piece of maple and without stopping run the board through the bandsaw. You don’t want to make the line have too tight of curves. Even if the band saw leaves kinda of a jagged line you don’t want to use a spindle sander to try and smooth it out because you won’t be able to get both sides perfect. It is best to glue the boards up straight from the band saw. I recommend dry fitting and clamping the center strip of wood first because it will tend to move. You need a little extra to cut off from all three pieces because they all won’t stay aligned when clamping.
