Bich Chu Carpentry Village

Published:  09:17 Thursday - May 27, 2010 Bich Chu Village lies on the bank of the Red River running through Vinh Tuong District.



The village is famous for its carpentry works and Bich Chu villagers were seen going to different localities with saws and chisels to make furniture. Their skills match those from famous localities for carpentry in Vietnam such as Son Tay and Nam Dinh.

All of the village�s 800 households are engaging in carpentry trade. The villagers produce not only common household wood furniture, but also fine art wood furniture and statues and other woodcuts for worshiping with sophisticated traditional decorations.

Bich Chu wooden furniture is famous not only in the province but also in other localities and the village�s products are found in many luxurious furniture shops in Hanoi.
