Wood carving is a form of woodworking by means of a cutting tool in one hand or a chisel by two hands or white one hand on a chisel and one hand on a mallet, resulting in a wooden figure or figurine.

This documentary takes a look at the vanishing trade of Dong Yang woodcarving in Singapore. Featuring one of the oldest woodcarvers in Singapore, the documentary talks about the rich history of the craft, struggles of keeping the trade alive, and what the future holds.

There are different types of woods you can use for wood carving, including aspen (inexpensive), butternut (great for beginners), and walnut.

Methods and styles can vary, and they go from chip carving, relief carving, and the Scandinavian flat-plane.
