The artisans engaged in wood carving draw their inspiration from the rich temple tradition of Odisha. Besides the traditional wood carving items such as elephants, gods and goddesses, wood carved panels etc,
products on home decors like floating shelves, Konark wheels, candle stand, bangle stand etc. have been experimented in recent times.
While most artisans still depend on traditional equipments like chisels and hammers, the new generation workers have started using machines to ease their work and complete the products faster. Government store Utkalika in the city dealing with all kinds of art, craft and fabrics is also having a beautiful collection of the wooden items. Many wood craft items are also available at Ekamra Haat
