Meet Brock, Alan and Todd, master woodworkers producing custom furniture and millwork from Elkhart, Indiana.

Brock Nickell

Brock Nickell, Owner Brock has been in the woodworking industry since 1998, first at an architectural millwork company, then moving to a custom woodshop in late 1999. With a desire to learn the art of custom furniture building, Brock attended the Chippendale International School of Furniture near Edinburgh, Scotland. Upon his return in 2001, he rejoined the same custom woodshop as a craftsman until 2005 when he left to start B. Nickell Woodworking. Initially a solo operation, the demand for B. Nickell Woodworking's quality product required Brock to add a few more capable hands.
