    That is stunning! I love how you framed it. Is the walnut frame just a bit proud of the lighter outer frame? If so I really like the effect.

      Yes, the walnut is thicker than the maple. I have a lot of small strips of maple, walnut, cherry & oak - cutoffs from a cabinet shop. They are not big enough to use for much other than frames. So I use what I got and make the best of it. I wanted to put a solid backer on this, rather than the open style from the original pattern. Someone gave me some walnut veneer, so I had to learn how to soften wrinkled, brittle veneer to glue to the BB. That's the thing about woodworking, I learn something new every project I do!

        Well done Jo.

        I like the effect Rolf mentioned as well. It adds a nice feature.

        Do I understand that all of the walnut is veneered? You did a great job aligning the grain.

          Karl, just the backer behind the rose is veneer. The walnut around the rose is 3/4" thick.
