Westeros War (Coffee) Table
Wow. It took me over a week to find the "new thread" button. Maybe more than just shades of brown could be used here? Sorry, I've never forum-ed in my life, I don't even Reddit, never learned it.
Anyway, I have some pictures of my map, the hand carved wood map of Westeros from A Song of Ice and Fire, carved atop a coffee table. Attachment 61943
I've been basically done carving the outline of the island for about a month now, and have been smoothing out the areas of water. In this picture you can see the right side of that bay is much smoother than the left. I have been going around and cleaning up where I made rough chisel cuts to get the basic shape.
Also I have been working on rivers (mostly when I tire of cleaning up the rough spots). These are done by using a 16d framing nail, basically tracing my pencil-drawn rivers until they have depth.
Now that I've sort of figured this site out, I should be able to keep you all more posted on the progress of this map.
