Chick With Chainsaw - fabulous wooden gifts and rustic decor from Yorkshire!

Based on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, in the Peak District National Park, Chick With Chainsaw designs and makes unique chunky wooden gifts and wood art, including cheeseboards, coasters, cufflinks, fruit bowls, wooden hearts and more. Everything we make is a genuine one-off, part crafted by nature, in our own little wood, and part crafted by Chick With Chainsaw and her assistant The Cherub.

When the original Chick With Chainsaw Louise couldn’t find a chunky wooden cheeseboard for her rustic kitchen, she decided to make her own. Soon friends and family were demanding wooden cheeseboards and wood art, friends of friends wanted wooden coasters and spoon stands, and Chick With Chainsaw was born.

Armed only with a trusty Bosch chainsaw, a bottle of organic flaxseed oil and some big trees in need of pruning, Louise quickly found herself with customers on three continents. All that thanks to nothing more than word of mouth and a couple of craft shows. And to this day, all of our products are lovingly handmade by Louise and carefully packed with the help of her enthusiastic little Cherub. That's him in the photo with a freshly chainsawn cheeseboard!

We work with whatever nature gives us in our tiny wood in the Peak District. That includes laurel wood, rhododendron wood, alder wood, cherry wood, oak wood, silver birch wood, beech wood, laburnum wood, holly wood and other types of wood. The trees we use are chosen for their beauty and ability to regenerate after pruning. Any offcuts of wood that aren’t suitable for gifts are recycled into logs for our woodburner. Even our sawdust is recycled and used as wood chippings for woodland paths and fallen leaves are composted.

Whether you're looking for a unique piece of upcycled wood art or an eco cheeseboard for a rustic friend, or a set of cool wooden coasters, or a pair of wooden cufflinks to impress your friends (hey, you can even pretend you did the chainsawing!), Chick With Chainsaw will be happy to oblige.

    And here I am, the chick with the chainsaw, designing and making all the things you see in my shop! Actually it's more nature that does the design bit, but I'm the one who saws, and sands, and oils, and gift wraps, and packs, and ships.

    Assistant

    I'm the cherub who assists the chick with the chainsaw! I even have my own toy chainsaw, a Bosch just like my mummy's. I may be only five years old, but what I lack in stature, I make up for in fun.
