Process of Woodworking

Wood is the infrastructure of any house built in ancient Kathmandu architecture. Kathmandu is full of houses with woodwork as the main or the only decorations in them. The beautiful pillars, windows (tikijhya and sajhya), doors, and tudals found in temples, shelter homes, palaces, etc. stand out as the models of woodcraft seen in the Kathmandu Valley . The skills of many woodworkers in Kathmandu like the Silpakars and Kasthakars have been handed down through their ancestral lineage. But, whether sculpting a big frame or carving a small showpiece, these woodworkers have to work through proper steps.
