Quality Bespoke Wooden Furniture and Wooden Artefacts




Welcome to the world of Spirits Of Wood, where you will find many wood sculpture ideas to stimulate your imagination. Take your time to browse through the different, unique hand crafted wooden products on display, and remember that there will always be new additions made to the site (so don't forget to add us to your favourites folder).

I'm Dick Tilley, founder of Spirits of Wood based in the UK.  My relationship and fascination with wood started from a young age which naturally lead me to work in wood and timber related jobs.  My past jobs included being a tree surgeon to a wood carver.

I finally wanted to concentrate on focusing my artistic skills on doing what I enjoyed most, to create natural wood and living willow sculptures for everyone to appreciate.

Chainsaw Carving

My love of wood carving and especially chainsaw carving inspired me to create this company, 'Spirits of Wood'.  As you browse through the gallery you will see that all the products displayed are reflected by my love and motivation for my work.

With chainsaw sculpturing, I can create wooden figurines and natural wood sculptures of all size and form.  From totem poles to quirky furniture, I can carve these out of various types of timber.

If you have something specific in mind or are looking for something different or unusual, why not call us to arrange a convenient time for you to visit our carving workshop at Irchester Country Park and view our wider selection of bespoke and traditional work.

Living Willow Work

I also love creating living willow sculptures for garden landscaping.  To make a fantastic garden feature that will wow everyone, a combination of a willow with wood sculpture will set tongues wagging. Click here to view the gallery of our existing commissioned work.
