Wood Carving
 
In the grasslands on Banni there were traditionally many Desi Baval trees. Desi Baval although very tough cannot be carved intricately. A whole school of wood carving developed which carves designs which look very pretty but are not very deep and thus can be carved on hard wood. The artisans make small articles of wood and carve them. The production is highly fragmented with each artisan making goods on an individual level. Efforts should be made to give proper equipment so that some part of the routine work like cutting, planning etc. can be done with the help of a machine while the carvings are done by hand.
