Most of us have been out on the open water. Few of us know what lies beneath the surface. These Below the Boat Wood Charts use bathymetric charts — the underwater equivalent of topographic maps — and laser-cut, hand-colored sheets of Baltic birch to create stunningly detailed recreations of the sea floor/lake bed in dozens of different locations, covering everywhere from the Alalakeiki Channel off the coast of Maui to the rivers surrounding Manhattan. Makes an ideal Father's Day gift for any sea-faring dad, especially since it's the only nautical-themed decoration that's acceptable two miles or more inland.
