Dan’s Outdoor Furniture has been a family-owned business since 1984, and we’ve had the opportunity to build residential and commercial outdoor furniture in Central Wisconsin and all across the United States.
In 1984, our family business began. It was Dan who started building cedar picnic tables and selling them at a little spot on State Highway 13 and Country Road V in Spencer, WI. Fast forward, in less than three years, it had transformed into a full-time venture. Interestingly, the garage at his parents’ place, where it all began, was simply not big enough anymore to accommodate the growth.
In 1989, we bought land on Highway 13, between Spencer and Marshfield. We built a shop there. The next year, we constructed a 5000 square foot warehouse. Back then, we made our products from Pressure Treated Pine and Western Red Cedar. Check out this REAL CEDAR video about Western Red Cedar. By 1994, we stopped using pine and concentrated solely on Western Red Cedar.
Over the years, our dealer network expanded, and our products started selling across the Midwest states.
In 2007 we built a new shop and office building with an additional 3500 square feet. This building is heated with an outdoor wood furnace by heating water and passing it through the floor. We now use all our wood scrap to help to heat this water. Our new office provided needed space and the shop was large enough to hold most of our lumber all the way to completion of products to be sold. We added a dust collection system, wide-belt sander, joiner and other sanding equipment in the years to follow.
In the slow years of the great-recession we retooled and started a new line of patio furniture that we call the Ozark Collection. It features contoured seats and a higher back. It is now our best seller and compliments our Hillsfield Collection and Adirondack Collection of patio furniture designs.
In the early years of the internet we published our first website dansoutdoorfurniture.com and started to sell our Handcrafted Western Red Cedar Outdoor Furniture products online. In 1998 we sold our first picnic table to a customer in California and within 4 more years online sales were 42% of our annual sales. Last year our online sales surpassed all other years and were 92% or our total yearly sales. We have shipped to all 50 states and to Canada and Italy.
Many of our items are Commercial Cedar Outdoor Furniture products and are made to hold up to constant use in restaurants, park and campgrounds just to name a few. Our quality cedar outdoor furniture can be found all across the United States.
