Laser-cut wooden relief map of Chesapeake Bay, featuring the Chesapeake Bay region. Map is framed and ready to hang, a unique and beautiful gift of artwork for sailors and land-lovers alike.
More than 150 rivers and streams drain into Chesapeake Bay, the largest estuary in the United States. It drains a basin of over 64,000 square miles into t he Atlantic Ocean, but it's actually quite shallow. Its average depth is only 21 feet and almost a quarter of the bay is less than 6 feet deep.
Points of Interest: Arlington, Baltimore, Dover, Lexington Park, Nanticoke River, Pocomoke Sound, Potomac River, and Washington D.C.
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.
