“Woodworking is my zen time – a day in the shop is excellent to decrease the stress of life and create something.”

Retired Navy Chief Petty Officer David Plance is the mastermind behind Rowdy Penguin Productions, a local woodworking company based in Citrus Heights. With over 10 years of experience, David values the creative process of designing to meet each person’s needs.

Established in 1984, Rowdy Penguin handcrafts everything from furniture to cutting boards to candle holders. You’ll find the perfect gift from their line of keepsake boxes, wall art pieces, coasters, coin displays, and many other home décor items.  Many projects are singular and others are repeated, but each is unique in its own right – thanks to the beautiful wood grains, textures, and finishes.

To add another personal & professional touch, each first-time purchase comes with a unique Rowdy Penguin challenge coin featuring the penguin inside a saw blade on the front. On the back of the coin is a block plane to represent woodworking and a Navy Chief anchor to acknowledge his time spent in the service.

At our event on May 5th, look for new items like their lighted California state flags (pictured) and new laser engraved items.  Speaking of lasers, Rowdy Penguin now offers laser engraving on most items to add that personal touch!
