Step 1: Set up the templates on the wall

Begin by unfolding both templates and cutting off the “small-island” guide. Tape the Part 1 template firmly to the wall. We recommend using painter’s tape.

Use a ruler or measuring tape to ensure the map is centered on your wall. Measure from each corner up to the ceiling, ensuring the map hangs parallel to the ceiling. If your ceiling is uneven, you can use a level along the paper to ensure the map hangs straight.

Once the paper is correctly positioned, make sure it is stretched out as much as possible. Add more tape all around the edges to ensure the paper is tightly affixed to the wall.

Now, hang up Part 2 on top of Part 1. Align the edge of the paper with the marked lines on Part 1. Once the paper is correctly hung and you can see that the country illustrations match, tape Part 2 firmly to the wall as well. Remember to stretch out Part 2 as tightly as possible.

Step 2: Pre-drill and secure the magnets

Once the paper is securely attached to the wall, you’re ready to drill holes. Use a 5mm masonry drill bit to drill through the paper at the 14 marked holes. (Use the supplied wall plugs to measure how deep you should drill)

After drilling all the holes, you can remove the template (save it for later use).

Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust from all 14 holes. We also recommend vacuuming the floor for dust and cleaning the wall around the holes now.

Next, you can insert the wall plugs into the holes and screw the magnets in place. Remember to place a black foam ring between the magnet and the wall. Tighten the magnet until it cannot rotate freely anymore. Be careful not to overtighten, as neodymium magnets can easily break.

Note: If you have a wall that does not require wall plugs, you can poke holes through the template, remove it, and then screw the magnets directly into the wall. Remember also to place the black foam rings between the magnet and the wall.

Step 3: Hang up the first parts

Now you are almost ready to hang up the first parts. Turn Eurasia, Africa, North America, Australia, and Greenland over on a table so you can see the backside. Place the rectangular foam pieces on the marked spots on the wood.

Now you can hang the 10 parts on the wall. Hang them so that the magnet aligns approximately with the center of the metal plate on the map.

Next, use the cardboard templates to adjust the distances between the parts. We recommend starting with Eurasia. Place all 4 parts on their magnets, one by one. The pieces should fit together almost like a puzzle. Place cardboard template 4 at the marked location (refer to the paper template). When number 4 is vertical, Eurasia is correctly positioned. Now you can adjust Australia to match the template. Afterward, use cardboard template 3 to adjust Greenland. Use cardboard template 2 to adjust North America. Finally, use cardboard template 1 to adjust South America and place the compass in position with foam tape.

Step 4: Prepare the small islands for mounting

Now, use the piece of the template that you cut off in step 1. Turn the two sheets of small islands over on a table so you can see the backside. You should now have the wooden islands and their corresponding image on the paper.

The paper provides suggestions for how the foam pieces can be attached, along with a number for each island if you are uncertain about where it should be placed.

Place all the foam tape pieces on the wooden islands as shown on the paper. We recommend starting with the largest foam tape pieces and then working down to the smallest.

Flip the sheet over again and gently press the islands out by pushing from the front. Avoid using your nails as this can leave marks. For some of the smallest islands, you might find it helpful to use a thin tool to push from the back. Make sure to lay the islands as they were on the sheet if you intend to use the numbers to hang them up on the wall.

Note: Your hands might get slightly blackened. This is soot from the laser-cut edges of the islands. It can easily be cleaned off with a damp cloth if it gets on the table or the front of the islands.

Step 5: Place the small islands on the map

Now it’s time to place the small islands on the wall, and there are two options here.

Option 1 (not recommended if you plan to move your map in the future and want to save the template): Cut out areas from your paper template so you can hold a piece of paper in one hand and see how an island should be placed while you position it with your other hand.

Option 2: Download the image below on your mobile device and zoom in on an area so you can see where an island should be placed.

Regardless of whether you choose option 1 or 2, the next step is the same. Hold your mobile device or piece of paper side by side with the island you’re trying to place. Use the islands you’ve already placed to eyeball how to position the next one.

We recommend starting with the islands that are closest to the parts you hung on the wall in step 3, and then work from there. This way, you’ll avoid getting too large or too short a distance between islands.
