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 to the east. Its basin is conjoined 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.
- Chart Location: Lake Michigan
- Material: Baltic Birch
- Dimensions: 24.5" x 31"
- Ready to hang solid wood frame with quality acrylic dust cover
- Intricate detail
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.
