Jerry Kool, Parksville, BC





Our wooden charts are carefully reproduced from nautical maps using selected layers of laser cut Baltic Birch. They are then hand painted and glued-up until the desired effect is achieved. The final result is a faithful reproduction of your favorite sailing, boating, or swimming area and is ready to hang. Charts can be customized with your name, the name of your boat, or your company logo upon request. Charts are finished as framed works of art to be hung on the wall.

Contact Jerry directly at jerry@woodencharts.com with questions or to order a chart. You may also view our charts on display at Island Exposures Gallery. We accept credit cards and paypal for online purchases, and all forms of payment in the gallery.

Coffee tables featuring a topographic outline of Vancouver Island, Metro Vancouver, and the Salish Sea are featured on the V2V Empress, allowing guests to follow along throughout their harbour-to-harbour journey. Visit V2V Vactions to book a trip.

Our wooden charts are entirely made in Parksville, Vancouver Island BC; at 706 Ironwood Avenue.


"Jerry's charts are one of a kind! We had been searching for the perfect gift and as soon as we saw these charts we knew we had found it. The recipients of the chart were thrilled with the quality and attention to detail. Thanks again Jerry!"

About Jerry Kool

Jerry Kool has been in BC since 1970. Although originally from Holland he is a very proud Canadian. A boat builder with a strong bond to the sea, he spent eight years cruising on a sailboat chasing warmer weather. He came back to BC in the 1990's and began his small business. He loves working with his hands and wood as he pays attention to the smallest detail. He is happiest when sailing but working in his shop with his computer and laser machine comes a close second!
