Locale

Long ago, before rail lines had made it out to Chicago, most immigrants reached the midwest and Great Plains by boat through this strait. It's narrow enou gh to freeze over in the winter so, unfortunately, this convenient mode of transportation wasn't a year-round affair for our ancestors. Today we're fortunate to have powerful icebreakers to clear our way and a beautiful bridge to connect Michigan's upper and lower peninsulas.

Points of Interest: Mackinaw City, St. Ignace, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Blois Blanc Island, Round Island, Cheboygan, and Old Mill State Park.


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.
