The Wood Shop

The monastic woodshop is a busy place in which furniture and cabinetry is made and repaired, and specialized parts for buildings (such as windows, doors and moldings) are made. If the monastery is blessed with one talented in sculpture, they might choose to work with wood, in a small room connected to the woodshop. The selection and cutting of woodlot trees for the woodshop, and the management of the wood, from trimming, to milling to drying is also important and under control of the artisans of the woodshop.
