The sculpture is an integral part of cabinetmaking. Some woods are harder to work in than others.

The decorative elements for furnishing, or the doors, are called relief. There are low reliefs and high reliefs. This is the depth of the relief that varies on the plain background. The high relief defines an element almost detached from the bottom, or three-quarters of the real volume. The bas-relief includes sculptures of lesser depth.

The sculptures in round bumps refer to an element in three dimensions, which is usually presented on a base. These pieces can reach monumental dimensions.
