Wood Chart Long Island Sound
This beautiful map of Long Island Sound is a 3-D nautical wood map featuring the North and South Forks of Long Island, including the famous Hamptons — playground of the rich and famous.
This chart details the beauty of the Atlantic estuary known as Long Island Sound. Its tidal marshes are some of the most productive in the world, producing three to seven tons per acre per year of vegetation, largely in the form of salt marsh grasses. When this grass is flushed out into the sound, it directly contributes to the great finfish and shellfish production the area has become known for.

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.
