no previous part Part 1 of FRAME FOR MY SON series no next part

My son got this picture from his 8 year old son. Grandma helped pick it out.

Now I’m left wondering what frame design and what wood.
My first thought was zebrawood in a mission style.
My eyes are also drawn to the arch in the background and think it might work to pick some that shape.

I also have enough quartersawn white oak, Tennessee black walnut, walnut,Bocote,African mahogany, paduk, wenge, black limba, sapele,sipo, curly redwood, Caribbean rosewood, teak, katalox and and some curly maple.

Guess I will POLL my son which he likes best, but anyone feeling artistic is invited to chime in.

The walls in my sons house are basically the same color of Christs robe in the picture.

My wife suggested I make matching frames of for my son and my grandson.

You could try a Middle Eastern wood variety. That is if there is any left.

For some reason I see a dark frame – very dark.

The sipo is dark, so is the katalox and rosewood.

found this cool frame design on the internet. A bit too much labor and deadline for a this project, but I do like the design.

Rosewood sounds interesting. Maybe a detail that implies the crown of thorns that are only a few days after this time…

my wife picked Katalox … It is a very dark brown almost black. It is also know a Mexican ebony. Very dense and strong with a feel similar to cocobolo.
