The scope of carving depends on the nature of the wood. We use both hardwood and softwood in making our Wooden Artifacts. Hardwoods have a longer life and softer wood is easier to carve. Natural oils of walnut and linseed are used to polish the complete Wooden Artifacts to protect them from lust and moisture.
