Dan's Woodworking

Dan Davis is a house painter and finish carpenter by trade.  About 15 years ago, he started making yard art with lumber scraps and leftover paint from his various jobs and gave his pieces away to customers and friends.  With the down turn in home building, Dan found more time on his hands and ventured out into craft shows with his brightly colored whirly-gigs and birdhouses. 

Dan says that he likes nothing better than to bring his two dogs into the workshop, turn on the rock and roll and spend the day, immersed in his craft.  While looking around in his well stocked workshop, I found a collection of wonderfully rustic birdhouses.  Dan tells me that these are Audubon compliant, with clean out doors in the back of the house. 

I don't think you can go wrong with yard art from Dan.  Using repurposed materials, this local craftsman's work will delight you and find a special spot in your yard or garden.  Enjoy this little slide show of his work and be sure to visit Dan at Winterfaire in October. If you would like to contact Dan directly, you can call him at 530-272-4110 or e-mail him at
