I am a seasoned veteran of the woodcarving world. I've participated in a number of carving competitions earning numerous awards. I'm a member of woodcarving clubs in Michigan and Arizona.

About The Crazy Carver

I do chainsaw wood carvings of many different sorts, including bears, wolves, sand hill cranes, wood spirits, or your choice of subject. Most projects take only a few days to complete. Each piece is unique and one of a kind. Also, small hand-carved pieces are available, as well as bird houses, wine bottle stops, and walking sticks.

Numerous awards and ribbons have been credited to my work in several states and been featured in national publications. You won't be disappointed.

    This work is unbelievable. There is so much expression in each of his carvings that you do not see them here in these pictures. Give this guy a picture and he will make it come alive on wood. GREAT STUFF!

    Mark chain saw carved a 4 foot bear for my 50th. It was awesome. The detail in the face, paws, and fur was amazing. I have it displayed in my cabin up north.I would recommend Mark to anyone!

    Mark is a true artist - he see's the finished image in a raw piece of wood in a way that is remarkable. When we lost a maple tree at our lakeside home, Mark recommended that we leave a stump about 6 feet tall. From that nondescript piece of useless wood, he created the most magnicifient sandhill crane! Since we have sandhill cranes here in abundance, it is a testimony to his work that visitors will point to the carving by the lake and say "oooooo, there's one right there!"
    We are both proud and satisfied to be the owner of one of his pieces of work!
    One of a kind and profoundly realistic!
