Thanks guys !
@JosephThomas I did nothing to the top at all. That is straight off the saw. I didnt even sand the finish between coats and its glass smooth (beside the intentional ridges of course) My new favorite wood to work with- ebony !!
@JosephThomas, the bandsaw approach should work if you have enough capacity, and your saw is tuned well enough that you can accurately resaw veneers. But the least bit of drift or wandering will ruin the cut.
You can see where the brush strokes start and stop. After a few seconds if I go back and re brush to smooth the lines out the line stays their and the color underneath the line changes.
