Dan Buttery is from Lewiston, New York and a master designer with over 25 years of welding, automotive paint, wood and metal work experience.

I can bring anyone’s imagination into reality. Having been trained and inspired by the best people close to me, I strive for perfection and live by the saying “the sky's the limit.” I grew up watching my father work on cars and after his passing, I began focusing more on metal work and art. In 2012, I created Black Lab Metal Fab to make incredible art pieces infused with my metal shaping background. Whatever your imagination comes up with, my business is here to make your dreams come true. My business includes one off pieces, signs, and custom furniture. With a 5ft by 10ft JD2 CNC Plasma Table, 5ft by 10ft Laguna CNC Router Table, and 12 by 20 Laguna Laser. I am not limited.
