As the name implies, Cut Maps of Elkton, Va., specializes in highly detailed city, state/province and country maps. Each one displays the streets and highways just like an actual road map does. Instead of paper, the Cut Maps city versions are laser-cut in high-density foam, while the state/province maps use genuine oak. Etched-stainless-steel versions are also available. The oak state/province maps are $60 each for the small size and $250 for the large versions, while the foam city maps cost between $100 (small) to $350 (large). All stainless-steel maps sell for $50 (11- by- 14-inch size). Cut Maps will also custom-make one for your particular location. View the selection at
