General Information

This is an easy project that can make a great gift or decoration. It is a a world map carved on a piece of 24 in x 15 in edge glued pine, with stained backing made from 2″ × 6″ s ( Although I would recommend 1″ × 6″ s for remakes, I just used what I had on hand).

For the backing I used a 10ft long 2″ × 6″ that I had on hand and cut it down into (4) 30in sections. I then used pocket holes to join them together. After the backing is screwed together I stained it and let it dry. Once the x-carve had finished, I painted and sanded the carving, and then attached it to the backing. Once everything is attached I added d-rings to the back and hung it on the wall.
