Well after much design trial and error, I finally made a map. Not too bad for my first attempt at it. Watched a few different videos for different ways to get the map image. Engraved on PG Basswood plywood. Ended up being little bigger an 8" x 9"
Already have orders for more! So I guess that’s a win!
Looks great! I have yet to make a map…On my list though! LOL
Thank ya! It had been on mine for a long time, but, too many projects keep getting in the way lol. I have orders for more pens to turn on the lathe too… not enough time in the day!
Can I ask how you were able to get the map image? I see all these people making maps and wonder where do they get the actual map artwork to use. Thank you! Your work is beautiful!!
Maps are a lot of fun! Yours turned out fantastic!
Yeah I think I’m going to be doing lots of them haha, and thank you
There are a few different tutorials out there, and I won’t go into TOO much detail in this section of the forums, but, check out Snazzy Maps
Nice looking map! Like how you did the lettering too.
Thank you! I’m going to try another way to show the bottom of the comma too. Instead of cutting it out, I’m going to try a score line, see if I like it better
Congratulations @ryan.niemer, for a great first custom map!
Orders are always a good sign.
Thank you! You actually helped me a lot!
