Engineer and furniture maker Noah Lorang built an amazing topographic wooden model of the United States - creating every state individually and setting them all to scale.
The 7-foot-wide, 4-foot-tall, and 3.5-inch-thick map features 15 species of wood: oak (red & white), birch, ash, poplar, walnut, maple, butternut, cherry, cedar, mahogany (African and Honduran), pine, and two mystery woods. Lorang built the entire piece using a homemade CNC router - generating all of the models and CAM programming himself. The project took over 200 hours to complete.
