CityWood is an awesome new map of New York City and other cities that is created with several layers of overlapping laser-cut wood panels.
The CityWood is created from city data that is transferred into the computer. Features such as roads and rivers are converted into layers to create depth of the design. We use 3/32 inch (3mm) sheets of high-quality plywood, all of which are hand finished. Each layer is laser cut with a one hundredth of a millimeter precision and polished with sand paper to provide smooth clean surface. Wooden surface is finished with varnish to add color and material durability. Each map is unique due to the individual grain of the wood. All maps are assembled by hand with great attention to the creating process.
The CityWood map is being crowdfunded through an already-backed Kickstarter campaign, but there are 27 days left to go so you can grab yourself one at lower-than-market prices until it's over. Prices start at $29 for a super small 5" x 7" map, up to $489 for a 36" x 36" one.
Created by Poland-based Indie Designers, the company has several successful projects already under their belt.
