I've used this pattern a couple times the pattern works great for striated and exotic woods with wavy and ribbon patterns
Place the width of the board between the fence of your saw and the blade and lock down this will give you the correct width to cut once you make your first edge pass
After the first cut run that edge against the fence and cut the first piece of your boards
Step 2: Gluing
Step 3: Finish
Sand it down a little and give it a nice clear coat to keep that pink cedar color ! I find a flat spray spar urethane works well and protects the wood nicely ....
