I milled the strips, 12" long. Then I cut them into 3 equal lengths. I mixed the wood arrangement before glue up, so that they would all be different. I thought about glueing them up and chopping them off. It would be easier to glue, them plane, then chop off. I might try that and compare the time to do it that way.
I like the radius also. Thanks for all of the kind words and encouragement, from everyone.
Also I used my crosscut sled, with a stop block on each side to cut the groove, zero clearance, no tear out, and safe. I forgot to mention that in the description.
