Wooden World Map





Introduction: Wooden World Map

About: Hello and welcome to my profile! I love wooden handwork

Make a wooden world map within a half hour. Things you need:
- branches
- wood glue
- a electric or hand saw
- wooden background 40 by 40 centimeters
- your creativity / imagination

Step 1: Search and Cut Logs/Branches

Search some branches or small logs. I have chosen for 3 different sizes. It depends on how much your map will be how much brenches you need.

When you have found those it is time for cutting. Cut them in different sizes and use your creativity!

I have used a electric saw to speed up the proces but you could also use a handsaw. Watch your fingers.

Collect them all in a box/bucket and take them to a table.

Step 2: Choose a Background

For my world map I have chose some oak floor panels. But you could glue them on anything.

Step 3: Glue Them to Your Background!

Search for an world map. I have Googled an simple world drawing and found a good looking picture.

Take a wood glue and glue them in the shape you like. Don't use to much glue a small amount is enough.?

Step 4: Glue the World and Let It Dry

Now you can glue all the pieces in to a world. Let the glue dry and you are finished. You could hang it at your wall or use it as decoration.

    Thank you Sofiaan

    Looks good
    A little lost ratio. I think on a larger scale would be very cool

    Thanks seamster

    I really like homemade maps like this! I love how you used cross sections of limbs too. Very original!
