This was a time intensive gift made for the husband for Christmas. Found a really cool Mars Map that’s in print here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/387457074/mars-map-8x8-letterpress-redwhite?gpla=1&gao=1&&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_c-art_and_collectibles-prints-letterpress_prints&utm_custom1=6e3940eb-e843-4b06-86fc-c346accc2a79&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7-2l7JOD2AIVSU1-Ch22ggWPEAkYByABEgLfjfD_BwE
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!
