Known World Map


For this project, I carved and printed a map of the 17 SCA kingdoms that are the United States and Canada.  This project was my first time carving words as opposed to just images.  I also used pear wood, which was used heavily in period for woodblocks.  Check out my blog for more details about the project.

For the carving, I mostly used a sharp detail knife, a 4mm and a 1.5mm u-gouge, and a 1mm v-parting tool.
