Wood recommendations for picture frame to be sprayed satin black?

After seeing the prices at a frame shop, I'm making a float frame for the customer of one of my pictures.

It's going to be spray painted satin black. Is there a reason not to use the maple I already have? The cost of the wood doesn't matter for such a small amount.

This is probably something I'll be doing a fair amount, so I'd like to streamline the process as much as possible.

The prices at the frame shop include the labor to put your stuff in it, overhead, etc. You may need a miter saw, router, frame clamps, glue, spray paint. You can probably buy ready-made satin black frames much cheaper if you can use a standard size.
