Step 1: Bill of Materials

1)  Wood Glue
2)  Any Variation of 1/2" thick hardwood you like, based on the pattern you would like to create.

Step 2: Cut Wood Into 1/2" X 16" Strips

On the table saw, but strips of wood.

Step 3: Laminate Wood

In this step you will be laminating 20 of the strips together.  Arrange the strips in a pattern of your choice.  Apply wood glue on side surface, and clamp.  Read instructions on wood glue bottle to see how long the glue needs to cure.  

Step 4: Cut Board Down

On the table saw, cut the board into any shape and proportion you like.  

Step 5: Sand and Finish!

For the finishing process, sand down the wood, then with a rag, apply mineral oil.  Do not use any other finish as the mineral oil is non-toxic.
