Is there a Wood Workers area in Kathmandu/Patan?

I know there are areas, like metal workers, etc. Are there any areas where shops specialize in wood working? Specifically, I would like to get some boardgame boards made. Because of luggage limitations, I brought pieces for a bunch of boardgames, but I left the boxes and heavy mounted boards at home. I was hoping to print the boards on paper here here, and I eventually will do that when I buy a printer.

However, with the cheaper cost of labor here, it might be nice to commission a custom built wooden board (I have pictures of what the boards look like and they don't have to be too detailed (but there would be some painting involved.)

I seem to remember seeing several shops on the walk from the palace area to the temple area. It was on the hill just past the bridge. I did stop and watch.
