Chen's Woodwork is a time-honoured
workshop founded in the time of Japanese
colonisation in Taichung. The products
of their work range from Japanese ranma,
diety, mokugyo,cake moulds to all sorts of store
signs and plaques,the life and traditions of
which reflected that era and witnessed
the birth and rise of Taichung old town. Nevertheless,
traditional art is gradually replaced by industrial mass
production as time goes by,
and woodworking is facing the crisis of
fading away in the wave of fast production.
