  • Materials: wood

These wooden USA pieces are perfect for the DIY person!

They are individual pieces that fit together like a puzzle. Map grains and wood color may vary. Please note, that the background and displays are not included in the listing.

All 50 states including Alaska and Hawaii. Lightweight material to be able to adhere to a map, mat or print, or wood slab or whatever your creative mind can come up with.

Hawaii and other states such as the northeast may come tabbed together and are intended to be broken off of the tabs to be separate. We tab to ensure all of the small pieces make it safely to you!

The thickness of the lightweight wood is 3/16"

Please consider your space and measure first- Measure twice, order once. :) If you space out the states you will want to add more to each side. **The large is LARGE and is great for filling a wall, but keep in mind the larger the map the larger the photos will need to be. The Texas on the original map is 10x10, on the medium it is 13x13 and on the large is 16x16. Hope this helps!

***THE PIECES: The Marking Map was originally created to be the pieces to my Traveler's Map of Photos. I made these map pieces to save people from the exhausting and time consuming task of exacto-knifing each individual state/country out of foam core also so the pieces would have a better quality fit. These pieces have also been used as milestone birthday presents (I did my dad's 60th and all of his vacation pictures since he was 10 years old to this year! ) , newlywed/wedding gift, puzzles in classrooms, new baby, framed by themselves without pictures as a rustic wall decoration, ways to document your nation-wide breweries and beers, ballparks or whatever your creative mind can imagine!

TIPS: I used rubber cement to adhere the photos to the wood. Some people like to use ModPodge or a Polyurethane. To put the pieces to a backing, I used Velcro and adhered it to a chalkboard. To trace the photos I used a scrapbooking wax pen and/or a sharpie comes off a glossy photo with a q tip of rubbing alcohol. Some people are more tech savvy and use a CriCut.

I work hand in hand with Routed 4 U, Sun Prairie, WI. to get you a clean, laser-cut wooden map. #madelocal

Happy Traveling!

Absolutely loved this. I did this as a Christmas present for my parents. We bought under laminate board, stain, and trim from Home Depot, letters from Hobby Lobby, and Velcro command strips from Walmart.

***** UPDATE 11/15/2020 I purchased nano tape on Amazon to hang the pieces on the wall. Amazing! One small piece, about 1 1/2 inches, is all that’s needed for each piece. Tested a piece for 2 weeks before I hung the entire map. Soooo flipping stoked to receive my map! Ive had this on my faves list for.ev.er! High quality laser-cut map, packaged beautifully, and shipped quickly. Im using Lebanon, KS, as the maps center. Thanks so much for this amazing art project!

I love it! I wanted to include a couple other places with the USA map, communication was prompt and thorough. High quality, thick, smooth edges, these were better than I expected. I wanted to eventually fill this wall with every continent but it’s too small of a space. The wall is 10’ and I ordered the medium size. It’s going to be an awesome journey filling this up! I used the command Velcro strips to hang them on the wall. I had pictures printed on regular paper and used glue dots to apply them. Oh, and the packaging is phenomenal!! I’m not sure how she fits everything so tight and neat into the box, nothing was able to shift and break during transit.

Arrived on time, perfect packaging! I’m in lpc with it. I can’t wait to start adding our pictures. We used 3M double sided tape and just cut strips and it worked perfect
