I built a frame for this raised relief map using some old pine with worm holes, and I added a 1/4 inch plywood back to support the map. I finished the frame with stain and shellac, then glued the map to the plywood using silicone caulk.

Great! I used to travel from FL every year to go trout fishing in the Pisgah National Forest ;-)

I need to do this. I have the same map which ends up in odd places when not being used.

Right it might do better with a permanent frame and place on the wall.

Just go here and you can click any of the maps in the USA, and order them. This particular one is called the Knoxville map but it shows all of Asheville and points west.
