Wood Chart New Orleans
WoodChart's beautiful map of New Orleans is a 3-D nautical wood map featuring the Louisiana city known worldwide as the "Big Easy". New Orleans is on the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico. Nicknamed the "Big Easy," it's known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and spicy, singular cuisine reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. Embodying its festive spirit is Mardi Gras, the late-winter carnival famed for raucous costumed parades and public partying.
Points of Interest: French Quarter, Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Borgne, Chandeleur Sound, the Mississippi River, and Pearl River.

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 carving in a custom, solid-wood frame protected with a sheet of durable, ultra-transparent acrylic and ready to hang.
