I have a chunk of 3 layer walnut/maple laminate 1-1/8" thick. The center is 3/4 maple with two 1/4" black walnut slats covering it. Ive been surfing around and sketching to come up with a design that will really show off the wood. Something with a wide body because I'd like to show off as much of the thin walnut as possible. Any suggestions???

How about taking a look in the templates section, maybe one of Bill Hays he has posted, or maybe an R10 ?

Duke, here is the link to the R10 by Clever Moniker, that Matt Walt re-did.

Have a look at Bootman's frames - a Chalice or Lil'Plinker (with slightly wider fork tips) would be awesome. Esp as its quite a chunky piece you have. Maybe consider tapering down slightly towards the fork tips (so you'r around 1/8 thick on the walnut at the tip.

The R10 is also a great frame.
