This globe is in scale of 1:40,000,000 and is made by Marco Aurelio R. Guimarães from Brazil .
Its a mixed-media project that includes some excellent goldsmith works, marble/granite jobs, wood carving, marble turning, bent lamination, general woodworking and a new kind of “spherical intarsia” .
I find this project on lumberjocks.com where are more his amazing works .
Hi is a retired engineer , who now spends the most of his time in woodworking and sculpting.
And if somebody interested how the globe was made , it can be seen HERE in a extensive and illustrated article about the many problems and solutions He was involved when making the globe .
There are some pretty clever ideas .
