Making world maps from wood and plywood
There are many ways to give your home a unique and distinctive aura that will perfectly match your character. One of the most suitable ways is to decorate the interior with stylish elements made from natural materials. It has long been noted that the fashion is cyclical and has the property of returning. Right now, again at the peak of their popularity, a variety of decorative items and accessories made of wood – wooden frames for glasses, watches, bags, clutches, gadget covers, dishes, original tables, coasters, armchairs, shelves, maps of the world or individual states and much more.
The world map on the wall has long been an original solution that fits almost any interior. But you will agree, the paper world map on the wall will not look as stylish and luxurious as a map made of wood.

As a rule, a wooden map is made of two parts – the base and the separate continents on it. The material for making such a card can be a tree, plywood, cork or a combination of these materials. Based on the map for the convenience of the arrangement of elements, contours, continents, countries, islands, as well as the names of oceans, seas of straits are plotted. Separately carved continents can be at one with whole countries (in which case the countries of interest can be painted in different colors) or cut out along the borders and add up like a puzzle. To enhance the effect of the aquatic environment (seas, oceans), it is possible to use blue illumination. The natural structure of the tree and the combination of materials will create a unique and unique product that can not go unnoticed.
