Cork World Map

Cleaning Up the Workshop I found a piece of Cork of 5mm left from another project and I thought about using it to make a World Map that I will stick on my wall.

I've stuck it to a 3mm plywood board to get more deepness and stability.

Also I downloaded this image from the internet that I have chosen, not for its accuracy, but for its simplicity of contours that will make it easier to cut in the Scroll Saw.

I have printed it in several A4 sheets and I have joined them using transparent tape and then glued them on the board.

Now I'm cutting all the contours using an utility knife.

In order to avoid staining the Cork with glue, turn over the board and stuck the cuts upside down.

I am gonna use the scroll saw of the Portable Workshop that comes in handy because of its wide table which will make the job easier. It took me one hour to make all the cuts.

To fix all the pieces to the wall I used silicone adhesive. A few drops per piece will be enough.

I am using the template again to place all the parts with accuracy.

After removing the template, I just need to add some more islands and ... that's it!

Where to get some materials and tools used in this project:

hola Hannah, me alegra que te guste! si te fijas, en este artículo un poco más arriba donde sale la foto del mapa, tienes un link para entrar a la imagen. Un poco más abajo tienes otro para ver cómo imprimir en varios A4 y unirlos para hacer la plantilla. Mándame fotos cuando termines!
