Very nice. A very interesting approach to the bottom. I have not seen anything similar so far.
Ok I will spill the beans. I glued three pieces of maple and two walnut together. The next day I went out to take it out of the clamps. I thought it would be cool to cut the bottom and flip a couple to make it checker pattern. Half way through my first cut it hit me that it wouldn’t work because it was an odd number. So I cut the rest and added the walnut strips to fix my screw up and that is what I ended up with.

It's not that you made a mistake, it's the beautify way you corrected it. The mark of a good craftsman.
