In the present work are set forth the results achieved from research in the collection of wooden objects from Los Buchillones, highlighting: the real number of artifacts of wood making up the collection, their different forms and sizes, function, use, construction techniques, state of conservation and kind of wood in which they were fashioned. The vision that Caribbean Archaeology and History had on the use of wood among indigenous communities which settled these territories is updated and deepened, showing the richness and diversity of these objects which allow us to study unknown elements of the aboriginal aesthetic world, as well as its link with social and economic processes of the society which created and used them.
