I am making a picture frame for a friend’s baby shower. There will be a purple mat around the picture, so I thought it would be nice to do a purple heart inlay in the frame (maple). I was thinking something like this:
to kind of give a “ribbony” look. My question is about the joinery. In the top left of the drawing I have shown approximately what a mitered corner would look like, and in the top right I’ve shown what a stub-tenon or some other kind of perpendicular joint would look like. The problem is, I don’t really like either of them :). Do I have any other options? Which would you guys do/prefer? Any other thoughts?
