The fusion of science + art
What we do
Established in 2019, Erlenmeyer Designs create scientifically inspired woodwork that are laser cut and hand processed. Ranging from the various bathymetric lake maps in Canada to childrens’ chemistry puzzles, Erlenmeyer Designs aim to create items that are original, unique, and with a local focus.
Stemming from a small idea of just making something simple such as a childrens science puzzle, Erlenmeyer Designs has grown in the past year to serve over 1000+ unique customers, processing over 3000 ornaments, and created close to 200 maps for our clients. We are delighted and excited to continue creating more products that will add the personal touch to your cottrages and homes.

Bathymetric Lake Maps
Our bathymetric maps are created by collecting bathymetric data from various water depth sources. Once the bathymetric data is collected, the outline of each layer is then digital drawn and are cut with precision with our laser cutter. Every map can be customized with your specific cabin location, address, or any other sayings that you would like to include. Our maps come in a variety of sizes and can be fully customizable. The largest map we have is 36″ x 18″ (West Hawk Lake) with the smallest of a Christmas ornament of 4″ x 3″. We have created custom bathymetric lake maps in Manitoba, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Ontario. If there is a lake that you are interested in, please contact us.
Nelson McIntyre Collegiate backyard project fundraiser Lake Maps
This is a fundraiser for the backyard revitalization project at Nelson McIntyre Collegiate. This project holds dear as this is the school that I work at, where my students attend, and the school community that I am part of. Nelson McIntyre Collegiate is a small school that is situated in the Norwood neighborhood. It has students from various socioeconomic status and a very diverse group of students from various backgrounds. What makes this project special is that the planning of revitalization the backyard was and is currently done by our students. It started as a project that is now transpiring into reality.
We will donate all the proceeds from the 5 lake maps that are sold to put into the project. The lake maps can be any of the maps that we currently have with customization included. It can be 11″ x 14″ or 11″ x 18″ in size with both listed at $200.
Our school has applied and received grants to help offset the cost of this massive project but also will need help from the community. More information can be found here: https://m.charitableimpact.com/ZoG3
