As pastor of Christ Congregational Church, it was both a privilege and a joy to work with Bern Custom Woodworking on the interior furniture for our renovated sanctuary. Utilizing salvaged wood from the old interior for a custom designed candle tower table along with solid cherry wood for the remainder of the pieces, Brad sculpted and crafted a beautiful family of sanctuary pieces ranging from Altar Table, Baptismal Font and Lectern to Candle stands of varying scales. There is a distinctive gentle, curvilinear sweep reflected in all of the elements which echoes the movement of fabric surrounding the central cross. The detailing and finish of the pieces are a delight to both the eye and the hand. We are very appreciative of both the craftsmanship and collaborative spirit Brad brings to his work. I give him and his firm the highest recommendation. Respectively and appreciatively, Rev. brotherjohn Gaudreau OEF, Pastor, Christ Congregational Church.

My wife and I were in search of someone to finish our home office largely dominated with wooden furniture and elegant luxury. After extensive research and hoping to find someone local, we found Brad from Bern Custom Woodworking. Following our initial meeting with Brad we felt very comfortable with our decision to work with Bern Custom Woodworking. Since we were not exactly sure what we wanted, Brad worked closely with us to come up with a design and solution that met our needs. Brad’s attention to detail is far superior to anyone we had ever seen and craftsmanship is un-measureable. While working on our project, you could just see how passionate he is about his work and it shows in the results. Anyone in search of a woodworking craftsman, we would recommend Brad to anyone for any job! Troy, Roxborough, Colorado.

We own a fine jewelry store and we wanted a quality, classy and unique look for our display cases.  We specialize in one-of-a-kind custom fine jewelry and we wanted our store's environment to convey that message along with the jewelry pieces themselves.  We contacted Brad and he came and met with us in our showroom space; listened to what we were trying to accomplish and the "mood" we wanted to set.  He created custom, elegant cherry wood showcases for our jewelry.  The cases themselves are pieces of beautiful, hand-crafted fine furniture!  Brad helped us create the experience we were seeking for our clients as they are admiring our jewelry.  Not only do we appreciate the exquisite craftsmanship, but also Brad's ear for listening and consulting.  We are already working with Brad on the second phase of our showroom and Phase 3 is in the pre-design phase!  Brad is a trusted and valued business partner! - John & Valorie, Monument, Colorado.

Brad is an honorable craftsman who loves his work and views each job, small or large, as if he were creating/designing for his own home. Marching to a "whatever-it-takes approach" in completing the task at hand Brad is extremely accommodating to the customer's schedule (day or night) and his prices are fair and competitive.  And unlike most contractors, he is a man of his word when it comes to all appointments and start to finish dates.  With an ever present smile, Brad is the consummate professional.  Darren and Laurie, Roxborough, Colorado


Brad has done numerous projects for us over the years:  TV cabinet doors, fireplace woodwork, framing of large piece of artwork on a wall , crafting a beautiful pantry door, provided assistance with the installation and modification of a bathroom console and  heavy ornamental wall finials in the entryway.  Brad is a superb, conscientious craftsman and someone you would enjoy working with to make your dream come true. Marlene & Tom, Roxborough Park, Colorado.


I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the excellent work you did in making the computer desk for our study.  The friend who recommended you said that you do quality work and he was right.  You were generous with your time in helping us decide how to design the desk in the first place and you were punctual in completing the job by the time you said it would be done.  It is not always easy to find tradesmen who have all the qualities that you do.  In case you should ever need a reference, please don't hesitate to provide our name.

b. He researched on fire code to meet requirements,
c. He kept us updated regularly on status,
d. He delivered a product with quality finish. Inohara Mitsuya

We wholeheartedly recommend Brad as a master cabinetmaker.  We were one of his first clients when he went into business for himself.  He built a large custom island off of our kitchen.  We didn't know exactly what we wanted, but Brad came out, discussed, measured, designed and the finished product was perfect.  It is solid wood and beautifully finished.  The workmanship is top notch.  He added a special swing up drawer for a heavy mixer that we use.  We have had it for several years; all the drawers are still fully functional and as beautiful as when it was first built.  Marilyn, Littleton, Colorado (Retired) 



Brad Bern has done several projects for us.  He is a master craftsman, who does only the highest quality of work.  Brad uses his creativity and experience to design and produce a piece that compliments your home.  He arrives on time and furnishes the project as scheduled.  He is a man of integrity and honesty.  We recommend him highly and plan to use him again in the future.

I first contacted Brad to have him build cabinets for our recesses at our fireplace in the living room.  I couldn't find the traditional sizes at the store and someone gave me Brad's name.  He built two base cabinets of no-knot hickory, one having a hidden pull out full depth drawer for log storage.  He also built the matching upper shelves for books and knickknacks.  He coordinated the setup with the granite guys during the installation of the base cabinet tops.  I was so happy with his work I decided to have him build two arched hickory and glass doors for the arched china cabinets in my kitchen.  Once again he did a fabulous job and was very meticulous in all the fitting.  If our funds allow I may have him build our new king size bed, that I am in the process of designing, for the next project.  I have full confidence that Brad can build anything I ask him to with great craftsmanship and attention to detail.  He is a true "master" of his trade.  Sandy, Bailey, Colorado (Designer)

We have had the pleasure of working with Brad Bern on several projects over the years.  His professionalism, creativity and exceptional woodworking skills keep us coming back each time!  We have recommended Brad to many of our friends and will continue to do so.   Kim and Chris, Roxborough, Colorado (Real Estate Agent)


We had just moved into our new house and decided to remodel our kitchen I had my eye on a beautiful tile for the backsplash but then found out it was too expensive.  I spoke to Brad about my disappointment and he came up with a great solution, a tile made out of brushed aluminum.  The result was truly amazing!  The backsplash turned out even more beautiful than I had imagined.  I believe that if you can dream it, Brad can do it for you.  He's extremely creative, skilled and conscientious in all aspects.  Needless to say, with Brad's help, I finally had my dream kitchen. Pamela, Denver, Colorado (Homemaker)

I have always been very impressed with the quality of craftsmanship of Brad's work.  As an interior designer, I also appreciate his creativity, and ability to work together with the client and me in coming up with the perfect design.  I have worked with Brad on many projects and always look forward to working with him in the future.  Kaye, Littleton, Colorado (Interior Designer)

It is rare to work with a craftsman in these times, and that is a better description for Brad than a contractor.  His woodworking abilities are truly a gift, and we couldn't be more pleased to display his talents in our home.  Not only is he talented, but he a great communicator, professional and meets expectation.  We would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

Brad designed and built a custom entertainment center with ample storage for our new HDTV receiver, DVD, cable box and stereo system.  He expertly matched the rest of the cabinetry in our existing recreation room.  We couldn't be happier.   Brad is also on the list of Preferred Contractors in “Roxborough Park Residential.  We know personally of quite a few residents in Roxborough Park who say he has done wonderful work.  Stevie and Greg, Roxborough, Colorado


I wanted to have cabinets installed in my home that would include an entertainment center, bookcases and window seat combination.  I was very fortunate that a kitchen design center recommended Brad.  He built the cabinets and they are beautiful.  They are the focal point of the room.  You can tell Brad is an artist by the attention to detail and the effort he puts into his designs.  He gave me a price on the cabinets and there were not any hidden costs.  I trusted him in my home even when I was not there.  Since then he has completed several other projects for me including framing and hanging doors and manufacturing, staining and installing baseboards.  I have recommended him to my neighbors and highly recommend him if you have a need for an honest, artistic and innovative woodworking craftsman.  Robin, Golden, Colorado (Firefighter)


We had the pleasure of collaborating with Bern Custom Woodworking the design and construction of our kitchen table.  Throughout the process, Mr. Bern was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional; and the end product was the work of a true craftsman.  The custom experience was a new one for us, and Brad's attention to detail in our discussion, his measurement and construction, and most importantly, the finish work, came together to produce a piece of exceptional quality.  We’d be delighted to serve as a reference for your services.  Susi, Denver, Colorado

This is a reference to Brad Bern and Bern Custom Woodworking.  I have had the pleasure of knowing Brad for over 20 years both personally and professionally.  He has done several woodworking projects for me at my home and in a previous law firm at which I worked.  Every time he has been asked to anything, we end with amazingly good service, creative ideas, impeccable quality and craftsmanship, quality materials and timely delivery.  He always does what he says he will do when he says he will do it.  His prices are very competitive for the type of extremely high quality work he does.  I regularly recommend Brad Bern and Bern Custom Woodwork to friends and family.  Sean, Wheatridge, Colorado, (Attorney and Counselor at Law)
