Wood Map of Nova Scotia 12 Feet Long!!
Thats not a typo, this map of Nova Scotia is going to be 12 feet long and guess what, now I want one. We got an email late last fall regarding a wood map. As the emails progressed, it turns out they wanted a really large one to fill the wall of their dental office. Jim drafted a sample of what an eight foot map would look like on the picture they sent of the wall space, with us thinking WOW, that’s big. A few more emails and the finished map size they settled on was 12 feet long.
So Many Maps…So Little Time
If you’ve been reading along on our scroll saw map making journey, you know we love a good wooden map project. We’ve been busy this spring. Between cutting, splitting, stacking, delivering firewood, cutting lumber on the sawmill, plus our regular jobs and life…we have been busy with map projects of all types. They say variety is the spice of life. Don’t know who ‘they’ are, I think ‘they’ are on to something.
Spalted Birch – before and after
Sometimes even those insignificant pieces of wood can be made into some nice. Case in point, these two boards are an example of what you can start with. Wood that was destined for the fireplace, but that spalted grain just spoke to me 🙂
Map Of NS With Compass
Back again with yet another wood map of Nova Scotia, this time with a compass. We received a request from a lady in Saskatchewan for this map and she asked us to make a compass with her coordinates as well.
Alberta and Nova Scotia Maps
There are a lot of Nova Scotians working and living in Alberta. One such family contacted us to make them two maps, one for each province. This is our first time cutting out a map of Alberta.
New NS Map Design
A few months ago, we started expanding our wooden NS map offerings. You may remember these:
Wood Map Flag Design
Last week I showed you a wood map of NS I did with a lighthouse painted on it. You can see that post here. This last weekend started out as a washout with an abundance of heavy rain. What’s a girl to do?? Paint of course.
