Based near the village of Culbokie on the Black Isle in the Scottish Highlands, Iain has been sculpting wood with a chainsaw for over 8 years with literally thousands of chainsaw carvings under his belt. Examples of his work can be seen popping up throughout Britain.


During the summer months Iain travels the country performing at various shows, games and exibitions such as the Royal Highland Show, Arbroath Seafest and The Black Isle Show. Every year he competes at the Scottish Championship at Carrbridge and has been lucky enough to win the event for the past 3 years.


What can be created? Well pretty much anything you can imagine, as long as it fits in the tree! There’s something for everyone. Best sellers are life like animals and unique benches.

Regular Gallery Updates

New images of carvings are added to the gallery regularly, you can also keep an eye on the Chainsaw Creations facebook page for new pictures and information on current work, events and progress.

All of this work documents carvings that have been made for customers in the past, you can always get in touch via either the contact form or by calling directly using the number: 07862717829

Custom Orders Welcome

As mentioned elsewhere in the website custom requests for carvings are welcomed, many of the past carvings that you can see in the galleries have either been made from photographs sent in by customers, idea’s from customers for custom items, or in many cases designs and ideas that I’ve created myself.

I normally always have some sort of surplus carvings that be readily bought from the yard depending on the time of year and whether there has been a lot of custom orders and/or shows and events on at the time.

People are welcome to visit the premises and can find details and a map on the contact page.
