MMMMMMM maps. If I could marry one, I would. This is my interpretation of a topographic map. It's built up from strips of reclaimed pallet wood glued up into sticks 5 layers thick. Each of these sticks is 1" wide and follows the topographic profile of the state of Vermont at each 1" section. I have to be honest with you though, I call it a pallet wood map, but really it's 90% wood glue, 10% pallet wood, and 100% reason to remember my name.

I voted for this project before I knew about the video. I now wish I could cast even more votes. Watching this video was surprisingly relaxing and funny. I know nothing about woodworking but I can tell you are a master craftsman.

While very time consuming, that’s something fantastic to have made! Clever idea! You have me thinking about an idea for my home state of WA and I could use a skill saw to do it. Love the finished product. Bravo!

Eventually it will come out that this guy is really a secret front for the wood glue industry. Or the pallet industry. Maybe both...
