About Owners Brad and Brian Thomas
Growing up on a farm in Bucks County Brad and Brian's passion for building began with construction of everything from bird houses to tree houses.
In high-school Brad refined his understanding of cabinetmaking during a 3 year cabinetmaking program at Upper Bucks County Technical School. As a student Brad placed first in the nation in VICA's (Vocational Industrial Clubs of America) cabinetmaking competition. During and after high school Brad started a small scale saw mill and cabinet making business. He then spent several years working for a wood products manufacturer. Brad returned to business ownership several years later when he started Thomas Fine Woodworking which later became Artisan Custom Bookcases. Brad's passion for design, construction, engineering and entrepreneurship has lead to the success of Artisan Custom Bookcases.
Brian graduated from Penn State University with a BS in Management Science and Information Systems. After spending 8 years in the IT world Brian made a 180 degree turn when he joined Thomas Fine Woodworking and then later became a partner in Artisan Custom Bookcases. Brian's passion for woodworking, his business background, engineering ability, design and IT abilities are irreplaceable assets of Artisan Custom Bookcases.
