Saylorville Lake, Iowa - Wood Laser Cut Map
This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Saylorville Lake in Polk, Dallas and Boone Counties in Iowa with the following interesting stats carved into it:
Saylorville Lake is a reservoir on the Des Moines River in Iowa and became fully operational in 1977. The Saylorville Project covers 26,000 acres including ground and lake. At its normal level of 836 feet above sea level, the lake has a surface area of 5,950 acres. At full flood stage it can reach 16,700 acres.
(The Saylorville Lake Map shown in these images is a custom map ordered by a Marina and is being used to give you an idea of what it would look like. A graphic image will be sent for approval prior to cutting).
You can choose the stand out map which is mounted onto a tranquil blue back with a key hole cut on the back, ready to hang.
Available in three sizes:
Small stand out 13"x16"
Standard Stand out 15"x23"
Large Stand out 19"x32"
Or a framed map, our classic solid wood English chestnut stained frame gives it the classic look, also available in three sizes;
Small 14”x18” map
Standard 18”x27” map
Large 37”x24” map
Interesting factoid: The principal purpose of the Saylorville project is to provide additional storage to supplement the flood control capacity of Lake Red Rock downstream and help reduce flood crests on the Des Moines and Mississippi Rivers. Saylorville Lake, acting in conjunction with the completed local protection works of the city of Des Moines, also provides flood protection for the city.
All maps include special points of interest laser engraved into the map face and come with a beautiful blue self-adhesive Swarovski Crystal to mark your preferred location on the map (see sample picture).
Each map is a beautiful artistic handcrafted work of art using the finest woods with special attention to every detail. Due to the natural variation in wood grain, each map will vary slightly in finish and color, some come to us all blonde and some has beautiful variances, making each one unique and one-of-a-kind. If you would prefer lighter or darker don't hesitate to ask. (Photo shown is our showroom display. Your map will be very close to this, but wood grain, knots, and final finish color may be slightly different.) Birch is our wood of preference.
Once the map is cut and engraved we hand sand multiple times, assemble and clear coat them for a lustrous wood shine. We believe that this personal attention each and every item receives makes each wooden item a unique work of art.
Made in the USA by American workers in an American owned business.
Please note on smaller maps (13 x 16 and 14 x 17 framed) it may be hard to read road names and if the lake has islands they will not be included.
