Multi-Layered, Wooden Maps Reveals Hidden Underwater Landscapes
Washington-based husband-and-wife team Robbie and Kara Johnson have opened up an online store—“Below The Boat”—that offers beautifully-made, multi-layered wooden maps that shows what lies beneath lakes, rivers and oceans.
Handcrafted in Michigan, these unconventional topographic maps provides a rare insight into the under-explored underwater landscapes—which are often no less stunning than their counterparts on land.
Consisting of stacked layers of Baltic birch, the patterns are laser-cut and glued together to portray the troughs and peaks of ocean floors, lake and river beds.
Each map comes framed and ready-to-hang, covered with a piece of clear Plexiglas to protect it from the elements.
