I bought my wife a lunchbox she wanted for her birthday, but that kind of seemed like a boring birthday present. I went down to the basement and dove into the cut off pile and found a chunk of wenge. I had a bit of curly maple left over from another project and liked the look of them together, and this is what I came up with.

This is a great frame! The two woods go well together and I really like the perpendicular flames on the maple. It’s definitely one of the nicer frames I’ve seen posted here.

The contrasting colors in the wenge and curly maple look great together… This present beats a lunchbox any day
