Wood Chart Sanibel Island
This beautiful map of Sanibel Island is a 3-D nautical wood map featuring this barrier island. Sanibel is a barrier island and a collection of sand on the leeward (downwind) side of Pine Island, which is made of more solid coral rock. It's known for its bounty of seashells which is a result of the island's location and its east-west orientation. It sits on a large plateau that extends West into the Gulf of Mexico for several miles, creating a shelf for the shells to collect on and eventually wash onto the shore.

Starting with a bathymetric chart (the underwater equivalent of a topographic map), Wood Charts uses laser-cutters to carve the contours into sheets of Baltic birch and glue them together to create a powerful visual depth. They hand stain select layers a blue-green so it's easy to discern land from water, etch major byways into the land, then frame the whole thing in a custom, solid wood frame, protected with a sheet of durable, ultra-transparent acrylic and ready to hang.
