Wood Chart Lake Michigan
This beautiful map of Lake Michigan is a 3-D nautical wood map featuring one of the five Great Lakes of North America and the only one located entirely within the United States. The other four Great Lakes are shared by the U.S. and Canada.
Lake Michigan shares its basin to the east with that of Lake Huron through the wide Straits of Mackinac, giving it the same surface elevation as its easterly counterpart; the two are technically a single lake. Lake Michigan is bounded, from West to east, by the U.S. states of Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan.

Starting with a bathymetric chart (the underwater equivalent of a topographic map), WoodCharts uses laser cutters to carve the contours into sheets of Baltic birch and glues 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 carving in a custom, solid-wood frame, protected with a sheet of durable, ultra-transparent acrylic and ready to hang.
