Unique picture frame

My Wife does cross stiching for a hobby, so everytime she finishes one I have to make a frame of it.

Since this cross stich was of a classical nature I thought that the frame should be also.

So I came up with a unique frame in the Greek style with columns and steps along with a classical pediment.
It’s made out of solid mahogany with some curly maple veneer as a border inside the frame.

Gary, I like this one. My eyes fooled me. I didn’t read your text before viewing the pictures.
when I read about the use of Curly Maple, I had to go back and see where you had used it. At first, I thought that the Curly Maple was fabric – part of your wifes effort. Perfect choice of wood – it fooled my eyes.

Thanks for all the nice comments.
My wife really did all the work. It’s took a couple of months for her to finish that.
It just took me a day to make the frame.
