2 methods to achieve pulling street map information from online and modify it to be able to use for your woodworking project. These methods would work for CNC like I did, but also on the laser, and even by hand. The first method uses Adobe Illustrator along with OpenStreetMaps and the second method uses Gimp along with SnazzyMaps.

Excellent tutorial, I've been thinking of doing a little one for my city. It's also the first I've heard of Thanks man.

Oh and farts are only for hopping on tables and work benches and general structural integrity hop tests…

gallagherchannel says:

Fantastic tutorial, Paul!
I will definitely be using your illustrator version to make something similar as one of the first projects on my new X-Carve. This was perfect timing! You’re a natural teacher, too 👨‍🏫! Keep it up ✌🏻

Bruce A. Ulrich says:

Really interesting! Thanks for all of the different options…I'll be referencing this in the future.

Worth watching until the final second. Not enough of that on YouTube if you ask me.

We do a ton of this kind of stuff. Great tutorial!

Marcel's Workshop says:

You are so smart.

Matthew Perlberg says:

cool to do this add on vid. nice one #nerd

jakewwwjake says:

Dude, the amount of work you put into this tutorial is more than I would ever expect. Props to you for going out of your way to give your viewers a step by step walkthrough and figuring out a free method that you yourself didn’t need at all. I hope everyone that watches this recognizes the hours of work and troubleshooting you went through to make this possible.

Clinton Bartenstein says:

Great tutorial thanks!

Paul Lane says:

You know you wanted the water treatment sediment tanks. That make the area so inviting in the DC summer. I will not forget running on Bolling when the wind shifted and blew that aroma our way. Great project my wife would love it.

Keith O says:

No wonder you haven't posted anything in a while…

Projeto Trebuchet says:
