Wood Engraved Map by James Bailey

I used the ShopBot CNC router with a fine engraving tool to engrave this custom map of the Sword Coast from Dungeons and Dragons. The map is part of a larger gaming table I built at the SSD.

Plenty of space on the ShopBot bed for this project!
Even over such a large workspace the machine is awesomely precise and delicate with the cuts.
Spraypainted black to fill in the lines, then sanded the surface to expose the wood so the lines really pop
