Chainsaw Carving | Mathew Crabb

An award-winning chainsaw artist, based on Exmoor. Throughout the year I give demonstrations and compete at chainsaw carving events.

From a very early age, I was always creative and spent much of my time experimenting with various tools and materials to make all manner of things from toys to furniture.

On leaving college I took a job with a local tool hire firm. It was here that I discovered chainsaws and became intrigued by the possibilities of using them to create sculptures. I started my own company, Exmoor Chainsaw Carving in 2006.
