No photos, no aerial video–nothing brings us back to our favorite landscape like being there in person. To capture nature’s beauty, we began carving wood into highly-accurate mountains and lakes, to decorate our walls with bird’s-eye views that were meant to be touched. Suddenly, we could feel the land from the comfort of our home, and between the natural wood and the familiar mountains, it felt like we were in nature again.
Carving 3D wood maps began with a scholarship–as ski and snowboard instructors at the Middlebury Snow Bowl, we established a fund for students to learn to ski for free. To thank our supervisors for helping, we gifted them a mountain carving. Many gifts later, our work has developed into a business that connects customers across the nation with landscapes they love.
Originally, we just mapped mountains. But popular demand wanted ski trails, rivers, buildings, and more, so we adapted our proprietary mapping technology to meet the requests of our customers. We’re also exploring industries beyond home decor, such as awards, charcuterie boards, coffee serving trays and more–always while incorporating highly-accurate maps and detail-oriented woodworking.
