Dan Statler became the Production Designer for “Monster Garage” when it began in 2002 until the show's conclusion in 2006. “Basically, what that meant was that I got to use all the tools in the garage when no one was around and make a lot of really cool stuff for the set. One of the things I did for the show was plasma cut designs on 4' X 8' metal panels that were hung on the walls. For every new show I tried to create a different panel that related to the car being built.”
The more than 50 metal sculptures and furniture that he created as the Production Designer of Monster Garage were showcased in 80 episodes over a four-year period on the Discovery Channel.
