The shipping forecast must be one of the most reassuring events we enjoy in Britain (providing we are not out on the sea). The Shipping Forecast is a BBC Radio broadcast of weather reports and forecasts for the seas around the coasts of Great Britain. It is produced by the Met Office and broadcast by BBC Radio 4 on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.
This is a decorative wooden plaque showing the sea areas. I have engraved the map on to birch plywood and then filled the engraved areas in a dark brown colour to give a clear image then sanding it to a fine finish. The map has then been waxed (not varnished) and is ready to hang.
It would be a great nautical decoration for someone who loves the sea, boats or sailing and would fit perfectly in either a sea-side home or the home of someone who wishes they were by the sea.
