Brad used to do "live" x-ray welding on pipelines all over the country.
He also built huge holding tanks for jet fuel. Twelve years ago, he quit
his day-job and moved to Brown County.
He and his wife, Stephanie, and their children bought 18 acres on the banks
of beautiful Salt Creek where Brad built Cox Creek Mill. The two-story mill
is sided with board and batten poplar. Hickory, walnut and cherry are used
throughout the building. The hand-made working metal water wheel is 14 feet
in diameter with 64 buckets weighing over 3000 pounds. This also serves as
the metalworking studio for Brad as well as a shop full of his metal art. He
makes both functional and non-functional metal art: iron skillets made into
turtles, cattails, dragonflies, hummingbirds, trellises, gates, and wine
