Upper Saint Regis Lake, New York - Wood Laser Cut Map
This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut Map of Upper St. Regis Lake in the Adirondack Mountains in northeastern, New York with the following interesting stats carved into it:
Surface Area: 742 Acres
In 1899, the members of the St. Regis Yacht Club commissioned Clinton Crane to design a class of wooden sailing sloops for racing on the Upper St. Regis Lake. A few members contracted to purchase the first of these boats, which were to be called Idems (Latin for same), and to sail them annually in competition. Over the next few years more club members contracted for these sleek vessels until there were an even dozen boats whose sails would catch the wind each summer as they competed. Today, these same twelve, unique sloops continue this racing tradition — some even skippered by descendants of those original owners.
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.

Interesting factoid: The Idem was one of Clinton Crane’s first projects. At 32 feet overall and 19 feet at the waterline, the gaff-rigged scow sloop with a non-overlapping, clubfoot boom, was designed for the St. Regis Yacht Club. Members wanted a design that was fine-tuned for flat water and the normally light air conditions on St. Regis. Flat sections, narrow beam and 600-square-foot working sail area met their requirements. But even with a ballasted centerboard and crew on the rail, the sometimes gusty days of summer can up the ante; capsizes are familiar territory and still excite spectators. (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
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.
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.
