1... My thought is to go with whatever design you shoot the best and enjoy the most. You’ll end up with a fine working shooter instead of a pretty frame that you don’t shoot that well or enjoy very much.
2... On another note (if you make anything other than a PFS), I’d also suggest resawing your blank to half-thickness and making a laminated frame with a 1/4” metal core. It’d be a shame to see a board cut frame made out of that beautiful wood fall prey to frame failure (as board cut frames are prone to doing).
Stay safe and good luck with that beautiful wood.
