I have been saving several chunks of incredibly high figured maple that I got lucky to find at a place that salvages felled city trees. It was a perfect match for one of my recent subtractive paintings for a patron’s anniversary. I was shooting for a Green&Green style with lap joints, but elected to not put in pegs of a contrasting color once I saw the painting in the frame. Would have been far too busy. I re-sawed to 9/16”, and book match the figure on each side of the frame. And the back are mitered pine to hold on the painting. Thanks for looking. ~ e
