Interesting factoid: To the north are two narrow finger-like sections that become quite shallow when the water levels are lowered and motor boats are not allowed. The “wilder”, center section of the lake holds two marinas. The lower end of the lake is known for its restricted beauty. It is undeveloped in an attempt to preserve wildlife. There is an eagle nesting preserve made from 300 feet of shoreline that is completely restricted from all development. No trees can be cut and nothing can be built here.
The lake's name derived from a walking bridge across the Mongaup River that consisted of wooden planks held in place by steel cables. The name Swinging Bridge Lake was given to the newly formed lake when the dam was completed. (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.
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. For personalized items, we will send a graphic proof for you to approve prior to production.
