Since its discovery by John Smith in 1614, Boston Harbor has been an important port in American history.

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.
