A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
We are looking for new distributors/re sellers around the world. Contact us at email@example.com

How is this wooden map made?
The CityWood is created from city data that is transferred into the computer. Features such as roads and rivers are converted into layers to create depth of the design. We use 3/32 inch (3mm) sheets of high-quality plywood, all of which are hand finished. Each layer is laser cut with a one hundredth of a millimeter precision and polished with sand paper to provide smooth clean surface. Wooden surface is finished with varnish to add color and material durability. Each map is unique due to the individual grain of the wood. All maps are assembled by hand with great attention to the creating process.
CityWood wall art is framed with wood and plexiglass for protection.
The design is available in a number of dimensions:
Desk Size: 5"x7" (12x18 cm)
Small Size: 11"x14" (28x35 cm)
Standard Size: 18"x18" (45 x45 cm)
Medium Size: 24"x24" (60x60 cm)
Large Size: 36"x36" (90x90 cm)
Add frame dimensions (1" on each side) for final size.
Each art work is signed with its city name.

Risks and challenges
We have made many prototypes of how the final product should look like and focused on how to make it efficiently in the highest standard.
Although we have a plan in place, we are unable to control mother nature. In the event that there is a delay, whether in the manufacturing or shipping, we promise to keep you guys updated 100% of the way. We want to be completely transparent and honest.
