For an XXL scale project (where I need sub-metric details for a small outdoor project, note that accuracy is not a big deal, I just want to draw and display small points, lines and polygons relative to each others), I'm searching for a background OSM-based map which displays beyond zoom level 19, I would say up to 24-26.

Do you know some URL which serve tiles matching this format: //{s}.tile.domain.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png for such large zoom levels?

If no, I guess I have to build my own tilling service, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel.
Do you know some tools to quickly build my own web service based on OSM data?

With regard to creating your own tiles, see here for displaying zoom levels up to 28. A branch of a fork of mod_tile with that in it is here - just use that in place of the normal one. If that isn't enough, see here for zoom levels up to 30.

The tiles underneath https://map.atownsend.org.uk cover Ireland and the UK at zoom levels up to 24.

For your first question, I've never seen that. Sometimes it goes as far as 20 (maybe 21) but never seen more.

For the second question, the reference is switch2osm.org.
