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.
