Wood Chart Size 16 x 20
Laser-cut wooden relief map of Lake Charlevoix, featuring Lake Charlevoix in Northern Michigan. Map is framed and ready to hang, a unique and beautiful gift of artwork for sailors and land-lovers alike.
A beautiful piece, this is the third largest lake in Michigan and has direct access to Lake Michigan via dredged channels. The lake is usually frozen for about three months of the year between January and April. It was previously named Pine Lake, but was changed in 1926 because, among other reasons, the surrounding pine trees had been harvested and there were 25 other lakes in Michigan with that name at the time.
Points of Interest: Boyne City, Charlevoix, East Jordan, Ironton, Horton Bay, Whiting Park, and Young State Park.
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.
