Wood Chart West Long Island Sound
WoodChart's beautiful map of West Long Island Sound is a 3-D nautical wood map featuring the Western portion of the Sound in New York. This chart details the beauty of the Atlantic estuary known as Long Island Sound. Its tidal marshes are some of the most productive in the world, producing three to seven tons per acre per year of vegetation, largely in the form of salt marsh grasses. When this grass is flushed out into the sound, it directly contributes to the great finfish and shellfish production the area has become known for. More than 8 million people live within its watershed, with the Western portion of The Sound being the most heavily populated.
Points of interest include: Bronx, Glen Cove, Mt Vernon, New Rochelle, Pelham Manor, and Queens

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.
