Way back in 2016 I decided to invest in a Glowforge laser cutter. If you're unfamiliar with Glowforge, they were trying to make the giant, room-sized laser cutters used industrially a little more home friendly. They certainly succeeded at that but the four figure price tag and long production delays are probably going to keep them from becoming a routine household item. Those delays, combined with the ~30 miles from here to the border, are why I just received my Glowforge right after New Years when they've been shipping in the US for a couple of years now.
Maps are a helluva lot more complex than a monogram though and they're the most susceptible to the foibles of ink transfers. So I took an opportunity to update our wall of past campaign maps by adding Barovia. All the laser cutter's really doing here is taking the draft I make on the computer and tracing it onto the leather. Then I come along and do all the carving and staining that makes it a neat looking map. Barovia's a little bit of a weird map for this with it's topography but I was really happy that all the teeny, tiny little buildings came out awesomely.
