Local Craftsmanship

There is a small village in Lan Sak that is famous for furniture made entirely of wood. Every household here makes a living by creating hand-made wooden products. All items are made from big trees’ roots. The craftsmanship is very good and the prices are very reasonable. Most of the products here are sold to middlemen from other provinces. They also do made-to-order.


The furniture’s styles range from very simple to very complicated patterns. According to the local people, they buy the roots from several farmlands in the province. However, the availability of raw materials is reducing because of the government’s strict policy on deforestation. Whether you are interested in purchasing furniture, or just would like to admire the craftsmanship, this place is worth a visit.
