Laser-cut topographic maps
Images here represent a few of the maps I am now producing right here in Beckley, West Virginia. Renditions available now at Wild Art Wonderful Things in Fayetteville, WV and soon at Tamarack West Virginia’s Best art gallery. Details on each piece are changed up every time, so no two maps are identical.
My topographic maps are personally drawn and designed in my home with my CAD (computer-aided design) program, then laser-cut in my work shop. Most of the frames for my flat maps are supplied from various local sources and frames for my 3D maps are hand-made also by myself and use 1/8” glass (also locally sourced).

“3D” “stacked” topographic map of the New River Gorge in the New River Gorge bridge region. Approximately 1/8” = 200 ft, so each of the seven layers of plywood designates 200 ft contour intervals providing an authentic representation of the surrounding topography. In a sturdy wood frame with glass.
