It’s my favorite time of the year! Time to get out and explore. I fell in love with this souvenir map chair. You can use a map of your home state or some special place you’ve been.

FOUR

Use the sanding block at the edge of the seat to “cut” the map using downward swipes all the way around. This will smooth the edges at the same time.
