Three cities are beautifully represented: San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. The pieces feature skylines and residential architectural styles crafted from exotic woods which are laser cut and then put together by hand
Pieces can be made in either light or dark woods, and clients often choose to pit different cities against each other.
