About Watson’s Woods

About us

Dave Watson began sculpting works of art in chocolate, butter, cheese, and ice, 20 years ago as a chef.

He traded in his culinary sculpting for wood sculpting after watching another chainsaw carver bring forth a beautiful carving out of a pine log.

Dave travels around the United States doing several shows a year. His work is characterized by the usual production of bears and eagles, but he has a wide variety of carving ability including frogs, turtles, pigs, rabbits, trees, gnomes, wolves, dragons, totem polls, and etcetera.

A large portion of Dave’s chainsaw carvings are special order custom pieces. If you have a specific carving you would like, please call us for a quote at (608) 253-7440.

Dave has been recognized for his talent in many newspapers and magazines articles. He is also a U.S. Grand National Champion carver.

Dave and Annette Watson thank you for visiting their web site. They ask that you call them with any questions or orders. They are often out of our showroom helping customers outside so you may have to leave a message, but they will get back to you as soon as possible.

We regret that we do not ship chainsaw carvings. This is because of the hairline cracks that are inherent to a wooden carving; they more often then not, arrive damaged.

Again thank you for your interest. Please do not hesitate to call.

Dave and Annette Watson.
