Any piece of wooden craft
is carved on wood, so as a carrier, the quality of raw materials determines the price of wood carving to a large extent. Different woods have vastly different prices, even if the same wood is taken from different locations of the trees, the prices will also be different.
1. The difference in material size
Take the red rosewood that is popular in the current market as an example. The length and size of the material are different, and the price is also different. There is a big difference from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands per ton. Because large materials can make larger handicrafts without splicing, and small materials have strong limitations, they can only engrave small pieces of handicrafts.
2. Scarcity of materials
For the current woodcarving market, Hainan huanghuali and lobular red sandalwood are relatively scarce, so the price is vastly different from ordinary wood. Crafts carved from precious wood are collectible and have a relatively large appreciation space. The definition of price is generally relatively high.
3. The age of the wood
When people collect wooden handicrafts, they are all looking for old materials, because the old materials have better material properties, and the wood properties are relatively stable, and there will be no cracking and deformation. The new material is relatively woody. Compared with the old material, the material is much worse, the density and grease are not as good as the old material, and the price is also lower than the old material.
The same tree species, in different production areas, because of the difference in the growth environment, the quality of wood will also be different. This is because the soil environment is different and the climatic conditions are also different, resulting in different quality of wood, and the price in the market is also high and low.
