This was a time intensive gift made for the husband for Christmas. Found a really cool Mars Map that’s in print here:
That we saw in store at the amazing Boys Fort in Portland. Decided it might be cool to make a wood wall hanging from it, and woodburn the image.

Traced image onto wood with graphite paper, then took versatool from Michael’s and woodburned for the next 20,000 hours : ) It was a ton of work, but in the end, a completely one of a kind, personalized gift that I know he’ll love on his office wall. Real conversation piece. Cool stuff!
