Dan has been a hobby woodworker since he was in Middle School where he first began hand carving shorebirds and duck decoys. After working in the banking industry for over a decade, Dan decided it was time to pursue his passions and start his own business. He opened Montana Sawdust and Rust in 2016. He now makes one-of-a kind wood pieces using locally harvested live edge wood slabs and a technique called Lichtenberg art. Lichtenberg involves high voltage electricity and a specialty finish.
Dan’s creations then become anything from tables and shelving to bookcases and serving trays.
You can find Dan and his beautiful creations on Etsy, at Montana Marie in downtown Kalispell and at various art/craft shows around the Valley. Also, don’t forget to visit his Facebook and Instagram pages to watch some amazing videos of his creations coming to life!
