don't forget when gluing individual strips of wood together they become homogenous so grain orientation becomes less critical. making an I beam riser is the same concept as actionwood. individual pieces glued together as one is stronger than a single block

Yes, you could cut the block in 3 pcs and reverse the center one and increase strength a lot!

If you can, make the grain like Bue's outer pcs. Won't hurt if you have a choice, plus shows grain better on sides of riser.
