Mark and Targa started Funknard's Manufactory in the summer of 2016. We are located in the Sierra Nevada foothills community of Camino, California. For the last 20 years our collective professional background is in graphic design, photography, and web development. In our free time we love to build stuff and work on our house. We are on our third renovation right now and we like to take it slow and do as much as we can with repurposed and found items. We built our greenhouse out of wood we got from an old skate board ramp! This love for building things from salvaged materials has translated into making furniture from things like old fence wood and light fixtures from used drums and old tools. We are having a great time and we hope the care and quality that goes into every piece brings happiness to our customers!
One of a Kind
Our work is proudly hand made in the USA, from locally sourced, reclaimed lumber. The wood we use can be from old fences, barns or even from the old Mill here in Camino. Some of the wood is from felled trees that have been cut down because of damage or disease and destined for the land fill. Because of this, you will see slight imperfections in the finishes giving it our signature rustic look. This wood is strong and has a weathered imperfection that you can’t achieve with new wood. The hardware items are found objects and things from flea markets, garage sales, and salvage yards. Each piece is unique and is built to last whether it’s indoors or outdoors. We spend a lot of time searching for hardware and other items to ensure all of our work is one-of-a-kind.
