"I couldn't be happier with the topographical map I purchased for my husband--highly recommend one if you're looking for a five-year wedding anniversary gift (wood). It's clear that a lot of care went into the piece itself, its framing and packaging for shipment. Thank you so much!"​

The Allegheny and Monongahela rivers converge and form the Ohio River at Point State Park in downtown Pittsburgh. Nicknamed the City of Bridges, 446 bridges cross the rivers and span across its many valleys. Our namesake comes from one of the city’s 90 neighborhoods. Squirrel Hill, a beautiful area on the eastern edge of the city limits, is home to the largest of the city’s five city parks, Frick Park.  

Our highly-accurate topographic maps are made by cutting out thin layers of either cherry or maple wood and then stacking them one on top of the other to reveal the true-to-life relief of the landscape. The finished wood is then mounted to a teal backer. Each map is professionally framed using all acid free, archival quality materials in a 16″x8″ modern black frame with a warm white mat, keeping it preserved for years to come.

"Their products made great gifts AND teaching aids!! They made a custom mini mountain for me to gift my boyfriend last year for Christmas. He was thrilled to have a mini mountain of his favorite hike in Colorado! This week I had been teaching contour lines and topographic maps in my classroom I was able to use the mini mountain as a teaching aid! Students were able to hold the mountain in the palm of their hand and truly get a deeper understanding on topographical maps and the use of contour lines! Highly recommend!!"
