The city streets are laid out in a grid pattern that creates such confusion it is often said they were designed to throw off invaders. However, that is not true! The streets were laid out in the grid pattern to allow people traveling by foot the ability to cross distances quickly. It may not serve the traffic of today, but the traffic circles, parks, and open corners of the Mall were designed to be open to all.
The Washington DC nautical wood map is created from high-quality Baltic birch. Each piece is laser-cut to precisely replicate the waterways and glued together seamlessly to create the bathymetry and topography of the greater Washington DC area. The wood is hand-stained to create visual depth and then points of interest are etched into the wood, creating a road map of popular landmarks and waterways. The wood map is finished in a solid wood frame, protected by acrylic glass, and arrives ready to hang.
