Welcome to "Jonny Chainsaw", the online portfolio of Arboriculturalist and chainsaw carver Jonny Stableford.

Based in the historic town of Linlithgow near Edinburgh, full time tree surgeon and training provider Jonny, uses his professional skills to create unique chainsaw carvings from a single piece of wood.

Limited only by the size of the timber, Jonny can produce bespoke items for your individual needs be it a garden, business premises or public space.

Please browse the gallery for examples of recent work and don’t hesitate to make contact with any queries.




I should advise any budding enthusiasts that working with chainsaws is dangerous.  Although chainsaws are designed to cut trees they are not designed to cut round curves or in tight spaces which could result in serious injury.  I only work with modern chainsaws that meet industry standards, I always wear Personal Protective Equipment and I am a qualified and competent saw operator working with saws on a daily basis.  There is no substitute for training and experience!
