I’ve been seeing these painted on wood plank boards and I really like them. Well I figured since I got this new router and I need to practice with it, i decided to see if I could use the router and make this without messing up to much. I downloaded this app called easy poster maker and it let’s you take a pic and resize it for your printer to print it out on multiple sheets depending on the size that you wanted it. I mean you could measure your wall and enter those dimensions and it would print your pic that big. So I did that with this just printed world view pasted it on the boards i jointed on the router table glued them together and then went to work on the pic I pasted the pic to the boards then went to work on the pic and painted the boarder and stained the contenants

Hi Shane, I love maps and I had to click and see yours when I saw your thumbnail. Great idea!

What are the dimensions of it. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but something tells me it’s pretty good sized.

This is awesome!! I’m new to using a router and I was curious – did you paint the whole board first or did you paint it after you carved out the map?
