Bradford Woodworking


About the artist

When Brad Smith is asked about his furniture styling, his tongue-in-cheek response is “rusticated, post-agricultural, contemporary country.” We prefer to call it Farm Fresh Furniture! Brad was born and raised on a working farm, and he returned there to establish his workshop in 1980, after graduating from the Rochester Institute of Technology’s School of American Craftsmen with a BFA in woodworking and furniture design. Beginning with a line of uniquely designed kitchen accessories, Brad has slowly expanded his offerings in furniture. His signature “ax handle stools” grace many contemporary homes throughout the country. When Creations opened for business in 1992, Brad was one of the original six artisans we featured in the gallery. We carry his complete Bradford Woodworking portfolio and often have his very special one-of-a-kind pieces available for purchase.
