Catalan term or phrase: escultor tallista
Does this simply mean a wood sculptor?

"A prop de la Casa Calvet, al carrer Ausiàs Marc, 31, a l’edifici propietat de la família Bocabella, es conserva un oratori projectat per Gaudí el 1885, que malauradament no es pot visitar. L’Oratori Bocabella va ser fet per **l’escultor tallista** Frederic Labòria. És com un altar de fusta i teixit, que té diverses estampes amb els sants protectors de la família. L’estil és el neogòtic de la primera època de Gaudí, sota la influència del seu col·lega i amic Joan Martorell."
