Rowdy Woods


Rowdy Woods specializes in rustic woodworking (creating custom shapes and pieces that have that old world feel and look as well as an outdoor theme) and combining functional objects with artistic features for that one of kind look in or around your home. Whether it be a architectural feature such as beam or a simple dog house, I can give that element the unique look that will make it stand out - allowing the owner to identify the piece as their own. Rowdy Woods has created corbels, beams, columns, mantles, arches, doors, gates, purlins, signs, cathouses, doghouses, bird houses, log shelters, animal sculptures, tikis, and ornamental crosses.

My name is Dana and I've been designing, creating, carving, and building all my life with a wealth of experiences handed down from generations. My great grandfather was a logger and teamster working with heavy timber and tools. My grandfather was a carpenter, millwright, and boat builder working with finished lumber and machinery. My father was master mechanic and teacher working with all manner of metal and wood milling machinery. My mother is a commercial artist working with all the elements for rendering any design on any material.

With my knowledge of old world building practices and my experience working in the construction industry, I can design and build something as simple as a bird house or something as large and complex as a shake roof log shelter... using three dimensional computer aided design software or a napkin sketch.
