We will be posting regular updates on our facebook page as and when shows happen or are booked:



The Dorset Axemen formed in 2014 with 7 members with the aim of perpetuating the skills of the forester, woodman, timber cutter, before modern-day machinery.


Our display contains all aspects of speed and accuracy chopping and crosscut sawing with razor sharp axes & saws.


Our displays are informative, educational, entertaining and enjoyable to the public.


All of the wood we use comes from managed woodlands & is felled to a proper felling programme.


We have public liability insurance cover, so if you would like more information about our displays, please use the enquiry form on the contact us page.


We would like to thank our sponsors Lovell & Barnes Ltd and The Garage Conversion Specialists for sponsoring us again in 2021!
