    Chainsaw Carving

    With his an artistic flair he never knew he had, Phil, in 1998, started experimenting with chainsaw carving. He started simply by making wooden mushrooms form a variety of timbers and after several sell-out successes at local shows, he decided to start selling further afield. As his confidence grew, he tried more complex carvings of animals and several commissions followed. Anyone who has visited Portmeirion in North Wales will have seen giant animals in the children's play area which were carved by Phil from a huge oak tree which fell in a storm. Last year, we delivered two giant carvings to Guernsey, and I am sure we must have shocked many people as we drove down the M5 with a twelve foot long crocodile and 6 foot high, three quarters of a tonne teddy bear on the back of a flat bed trailer! Phil's celebrity status was confirmed in 1999 with an appearance on the BBC's Groundforce programme in March 2000 and several appearances on local television programmes
