What do y'all think of this?

Texas topo map with rivers overlay.
Carved in solid mesquite.

This unit is roughly 10"◊10x with blue epoxy rivers.

The river locations in Big Bend region are slightly off on location, but overall pretty close.

2hrs engraving rivers
1hr mix/pour epoxy
24hr cure
6hr 3d profile
1hr sand and apply finish
24hr cure

I've been working on this file for a couple months in my free time. Cigar trays keep me pretty busy and of course my full-time job as well.

That’s awesome. Looks like the southern half is out of proportion with the north. Probably just the angle of the picture though. I want one!

Some of those East Texas rivers you should have used brown instead of blue.

The thing about Pecan is the color variations. Here is a pecan one of my early 3d files without finish.

Color variations give it character plus pecan is our official state tree. Either pecan or mesquite, it looks great. Well done!
