Finally made a map

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!


looks great


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!

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 :wink:

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 :slight_smile:
