About

Brad Wolcott is a classically trained studio furniture maker who combines contemporary design sensibilities with the finest materials available to create unique pieces of decorative art.  His love for woodworking began in high school.  While attending Dartmouth College, Brad spent four years working in the Hopkins Center Woodworking Studio on projects ranging from traditional Alaskan snowshoes to a Shaker-style pencil-post bed.  For his work there he was awarded the Heiman-Rosenthal Achievement Award in the Creative Arts.  After graduation, Brad served for four years as a cavalry officer in the United States Army.  Upon completion of his service, he enrolled at the North Bennett Street School in Boston, Massachusetts to pursue a career in furniture making.  At NBSS, Brad learned the traditional hand tool skills and construction techniques that are the hallmarks of fine American furniture.  This foundation of fine craftsmanship is reflected in Brad’s contemporary work where traditional techniques are combined with more organic, curvilinear forms to create furniture that is intended to last for generations.  Today he works in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, where he lives with his wife Jillian, creating custom furniture for clients throughout the United States.
