In Oberammergau there are lots of shops selling wood carvings. Good competition and plenty to choose from, including Nativity sets, Madonna's, Crucifixes, many types of household necessities, I guess anything that can be made from wood.
Wood carving in Oberammergau, goes back to 1111.
Today there are about 120 wood sculptors in Oberammergau, carving and selling a large amount wooden goods.
There even is a Carvers School in town offering courses providing specialist training for wood carvers.
If you visit the "Pilatushaus" in the afternoon, you can watch the carvers at work.
