3D Wood Nautical Charts

A bathymetric chart is the underwater equivalent of a topographic map and is the basis for The Emporium of Nantucket’s wooden nautical charts. The contours are laser-cut into sheets of Baltic birch and placed together to create a powerful visual depth. Each wood chart is laser engraved with incredible accuracy. All maps are in a custom, solid-wood frame and protected seamlessly with a sheet of durable, ultra-transparent Plexiglas. Each of these are crafted in a family-owned shop. You will easily impress guests with the quality, and knowing these charts are created with the help of a professional cartographer assures accuracy. A solid showcase for any room some of our favorites include Nantucket, Cape Cod and Islands, San Francisco & Bay Area, and Martha’s Vineyard although they are all stunning pieces of art.
