Wood Chart Block Island
This beautiful map of Block Island, Rhode Island, is a 3-D nautical wood map featuring what some call "Bermuda of the North."
Off the coast of Rhode Island, Block Island is one of the Nature Conservancy's "Last Great Places", 44% of Block Island is a dedicated nature preserve. The island has just over one thousand full-time residents but its population swells in the summer months, especially during their annual Fourth of July celebration.

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.
