The vast majority of my work comes from private requests for totally bespoke pieces
Every single carving is unique – made with Chainsaws and then fine tuned with power tools as required
The first step to order a Chainsaw Sculpture is to get in touch by phone or e-mail – and from there we can discuss the type of carving required and also the budget to work to
Commissions range from:
Carving a tree stump in situ in a garden or Public place
Birthday and wedding presents made in my barn
Small carvings from logs that can be carried away ‘under your arm’, to much much bigger pieces that can weigh 4 tons !
Wood sculptures for specific places, such as positioning on Gateposts or Tree houses
Smaller scale carvings are also available, such as signs for Children’s Bedroom doors.
Carvings are mainly done with chainsaws and power tools, burnt with a blow torch, and finished with oil or preservative.
Often carvings can just be made solely with the chainsaw, to provide a more ‘rustic’ finish and give real energy to a piece.
If you have any ideas, I will always try to accommodate, and work with you to carve something totally unique! I carve ‘Green Wood’ in that it has not been pre-treated, kiln dried or tanalised , but has been removed for a particular reason.
As a natural material, once carved, the wood will react to its new environment. It will dry out and develop cracks and splits, enhancing the character of the piece and giving it a weathered look.
With good positioning and some maintenance, they will bring pleasure for many years.
