Interesting factoid: Chautauqua Lake is located entirely within Chautauqua County, New York, USA. The lake is approximately 17 miles long and 2 miles wide at its greatest width. The surface area is approximately 13,000 acres. The maximum depth is about 78 feet. The shoreline is about 41.1 miles of which all but 2.6 mi are privately owned.
While the lake has a similar geologic structure (a very long, narrow valley) to the Finger Lakes in the east, it is not considered one of the Finger Lakes. Chautauqua Lake runs perpendicular to the westernmost of those lakes (much like an opposable thumb), lies in a different watershed, and was likely formed by a different process.
The lake's name has various meanings based on a variety of translations of the original native words of the Seneca Indian tribe. One translation means “Bag Tied in the Middle”, referring to the narrow portion between shore line’s halfway down the lake. Other translations include “Place Where Fish are Taken” as well as “Place of Easy Death”.
(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 (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.
