Below The Boat – Wooden Contour Maps

Discovered this recently. US company called Below The Boat, which offers wooden contour maps of various bodies of water. Various locales are offered – west coast, east coast and interior bodies of water.

The contours are crafted from laser-cut layers of Baltic birch, hand coloured and glued together. Sizes seem to be around the 3 foot by 2 foot range. It’s ready to hang, pre-framed in a custom, solid-wood frame. Prices aren’t too bad – about $250.

A few examples:
Great Lakes
Chesapeake Bay
San Francisco Bay

I’m keen on these two.
Lake Erie
Lake Huron

Just wish there was one for Lake Ontario.
