The history of humans intentionally carving wood is almost as old as humanity itself. As soon as humans could fashion stones for cutting, they used them on woods of all kinds. In the beginning, Neanderthals carved wood into purely utilitarian shapes for cooking, building and hunting. The Chinese and Egyptian civilizations are both credited with the development of the craft of woodworking as an art form.

From the Middle Ages to the Victorian era, masters of woodworking plied their skill toward carving items of rare beauty for royalty, the nobility and other highborn households. Rich woods of cherry, red oak, maple and other hardwoods carved into fanciful shapes lent an opulence to grand homes not seen in modern times.
