Wood Chart Puget Sound - Internet Orders Only
WoodChart's beautiful map of Puget Sound is a 3-D nautical wood map featuring the Puget Sound in Washington State.
Part of the Salish Sea, the Puget Sound was shaped by glaciers that retreated around 11,000 years ago. Ice sheets about 3,000 feet thick covered Seattle (nearly 6,000 feet at the US/Canada border), and when they retreated, they carved Lake Washington, Sammamish, Hood Canal, and the main Puget Sound basin.
Points of Interest Include: Bainbridge Island, Belfair, Bremerton, Gig Harbor, Kitsap Peninsula, Olympia, Olympic National Park, Seattle, Tacoma, and Whidbey Island.

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 . Pieces are based on the scenic Pacific Northwest's volcanic coastline, the warm sandy shores of the Southwest and Southeast, the history-rich coastline of the Atlantic, and lakes from all around the continent.
