Summary

Map of the us with completely seperatable states. I was inspired by the Electorial college 3D map that I saw here but wanted more flexibility for state modification. Now I can layer for population or make it a puzzle.

Instructions

I am using a laser cutter to cut out a bunch and then stack them for various demonstrations in Government and History Classes. Cutting them in Foam core board makes a quick and cheap model that is easily mountable on the wall.

Edit: Cleaned up and seperated for cutting an outline and number of Electoral college votes.

BTW - Come join the Epilog Facebook group ...  and post this on the "files" part of this cool user group...

Way cool....   I grew up with a wood cutout puzzle from the 50s and
mom and I would play it together to learn the states.

I still have it and been one of my "projects" to laser cut.. THANK YOU so much for doing this...  Now I can make a couple for my
grandkids for Christmas...   I will use 1/4 inch MDF or plywood and
paint..
