WORLD MAP No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture
Zoom Pictures

Finally got a picture of this map which is a present for my son-in-law to go in his man cave .
I used some scrap flooring and simply made up this plaque which has a couple battens attached to the back which have elongated holes to allow for wood movement .The size is roughly 32” W X 20” H .
The map itself was done by my wife ,she had the map printed on a piece of packing paper which she taped to the plaque and I carefully cut out the continents with a sharp knife (the hard part about two hours ) but it was worth it as it left a cutline in the wood which acts as a stop for the paint .
My wife did the painting with black acrylic paint and then top coated the complete plaque front and back with a couple coats of wipe on poly .
