WoodChart

WoodCharts-NLSP-D4L

Laser-cut wooden relief map of Lake Superior, featuring Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes, and the largest freshwater lake in the world (by surface area). Map is framed and ready to hang, a unique and beautiful gift of artwork for sailors and land-lovers alike.


Locale

Lake Superior is enormous. Its deepest point is 733 feet b elow sea level, which qualifies it as the lowest--and most insulated--point in the continental interior of the United States. The water at the bottom of the lake is so well insulated, in fact, that it stays a constant 39°F and only mixes with the warmer water above it twice each year (when the whole lake is 39 degrees).

Points of Interest: Baraga, Calumet, Duluth, Isle Royale, Lake Superior Provincial Park, Marquette, Presque Isle, Sault Ste. Marie, Superior National Forest, and Thunder Bay.

About

Wood Charts are based on soundings and measurements from bathymetric and nautical charts. Each depth layer is laser-cut from sheets of Baltic birch and glued together "bread and butter" style to create the contours and shorelines of striking waterways. Select layers are hand-stained a rich blue-green color to discern water from land, and major byways are etched into the land. The whole work is framed in a custom, solid wood frame and protected with a sheet of durable, ultra-transparent acrylic.
