Wood Craft Stores

 

 

The woodcraft tradition in India covers a wide spectrum of objects. And the place to purchase these items is at wood craft stores. A pleasure, indeed, to find all the wooden items you need under one roof!

So what do wood craft stores usually sell? Some of the commonly found articles are:

  • Furniture
  • Statues and sculptures
  • Wall hangings
  • Boxes
  • Jewelry cases
  • Utensils
  • Crockery
  • Cutlery
  • Decorative items like candle holders, photo frames, toys, dolls, coasters, etc.
  • Wood craft tools

  • Musical Instruments
  • Antique wooden specimens

Every region of India has its distinct style of crafting wood, and stores selling wooden items are unique. Moreover, the wood used in each region of the country is different, and hence each wood craft shop has a characteristic look and smell.

Wood craft stores vary in size, and could range from the small shop attached to the artist's workshop, where he sells his products, to large retail stores. The price of items available at these stores is also disparate. Designer wood craft stores are more expensive than ones run by the government.

In recent years, online wood craft stores have become quite a rage. They have made buying wooden items so much easier for people who do not have a well stocked store near them, or whose requirements are not met by wood craft shops near them, or who are too busy to browse an actual shop.
