Wood Chart Darien
WoodChart's beautiful map of Darien, Connecticut, is a 3-D nautical wood map featuring the shoreline of this coastal town and a portion of Long Island Sound. Darien (pronounced "Dairy-Ann") is a small town (pop. 12,000) that is quite wealthy, supporting four country clubs, a hunt club, and two yacht clubs. The town is situated on the West end of Long Island Sound, between Norwalk and Stamford.
Points of interest include: Bell Island, Bayley Beach Park, Butlers Island, Greens Ledge, Woodland Park, Goodwives River, Scott Cove, Great Island, Cove Harbor, and Long Island Sound.

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.
