D & J Custom Crafts in North Orange County offers shoppers one-of-a-kind, handmade woodcraft creations

Before you know it, Thanksgiving will have come and gone, and the mad dash of the holiday season will be in full swing.

If you’re searching for something special to gift everyone on your list, D & J Custom Crafts is a hidden gem full of unique woodcrafts in Yorba Linda.  

Owned by John and Dyna Samz, this one-of-a-kind, custom shop has it all.

“We make many different kinds of lawn decorations, birdhouses, bird feeders, whirligigs, spinners, flowers, scroll saw plaques, and much more.”

Have someone who’s hard to shop for? D & J Custom Crafts features an array of specialty items designed with everyone in mind. Take “spinners,” for example.

“Did you know that spinners chase away moles and gophers? Just put one near their hole and the vibration makes them hightail it away.”

“We also have whirligigs for all ages, including a ladybug that carries a ‘Louis Vuitton’ purse and a bee that is dressed in ‘Oscar Bug la Renta.’”

As artisans and entrepreneurs who truly love their community, the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is always welcomed by this talented twosome, who’ve been in business for more than 30 years.

“We are looking forward to the biggest season for our business.  It is always a fun time to share with our customers. We are thankful for their time and joyous attitude,” they say, adding that, “when Santa Claus comes, the wonderment of the kids is exhilarating.”

During the store’s special Santa visit, visitors can have their picture made with him for free and snack on warm cookies and hot chocolate to really get into the spirit of the season.

It’s not just Christmastime that John and Dyna eagerly anticipate—every major holiday is a reason to celebrate at D & J Custom Crafts.

“We produce high quality and exciting wood lawn decorations. There is such a variety of items to see! We celebrate Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Christmas, and all occasions in between.”

“We have the perfect gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, anniversaries, and birthdays. We have two barns filled with items—one is just for our Christmas Gingerbread and an Elf Village. The other is for everything else. We are loaded with inventory!”

It’s clear to see John and Dyna are passionate about what they do. Running a successful business is a labor of love, and definitely a team effort for the couple as well—John builds the items and Dyna paints them. 

“They are a product of love, and we pay special attention to detail. We are open every day to accommodate everyone!”

They also enjoy giving back to the community whenever possible.

“We give money or product(s) to all who mention that they are representing a charity or community organization.”

In addition to creating and selling high-quality woodcrafts, customer service is always a top priority at D & J Custom Crafts—in fact, it’s what keeps them going.

“Our inspiration comes from customer satisfaction.  We do custom work, and when an item is exactly the way that someone dreamed it would be, it is very satisfying.  We thrive on delivering excellent customer service to build a quality product that delights each client.”

To keep things fresh, John and Dyna welcome feedback as to what new items they can create to stock the store—including special requests.

“We are always looking to expand our business by bringing new ideas to our growing enterprise. Special Orders are always welcome. No job is too big or too small!”

“We make many different kinds of lawn decorations, birdhouses, bird feeders, whirligigs, spinners, flowers, scroll saw plaques, and much more.”
