Well here it is, the actual lectern that the books will rest on in the bookstand. I've uploaded it now, without the bookrest because I wanted to show the whole map before a carve a slice out of it (although I think I can place it in such a way that it just clips some of the islands, Klatch and maybe a bit of Howondaland. The closeups underneath are, from left to right, the coast of Nothingfjord since it has some nice coastling, the circle sea area, and some of the islands since they were fun and a pain to do.
I've deliberately left out Leshp and the lost continent of Ku because this is not a map, but part of a larger Discworld sculpture and I wanted it to reflect what the disc would actually look like from above (and again, why I decided not to label the places.) at a normal time, and those locations are not usually visible.
I'm afraid I got some imperfections trapped in the lacquer, which is always a risk when you're doing it in a woodshop, even with ail filtration grabbing most of the sawdust. Still, on the whole I think it came out all right and I'll take it as a good start to the project.
The disc, like the rest of this project is done in walnut.
