Jeff Miller lives the story-book life of a furniture maker. His suburban-Chicago workshop is set conveniently behind an inviting brick-walled showroom, where customers can mingle with his finished work and get emmersed in the sawdust of his works in progress. He teaches students there and he produces a prolific portfolio of handmade custom furniture.
Here’s your chance to be Jeff Miller, or at least build furniture like him with this 16-page excerpt from Miller’s book Beds.
Miller designed this modern and contemporary full-size bed based the common construction elements used in traditional Shaker furniture but took many liberties of his own; it is not an actual reproduction. And you can be thankful for that, the original Shaker beds measured only 28-in. to 34-in. wide and 70-in. to 72-in. long. Shakers also added casters, so the bed was easy to move around and clean underneath. How industrious.
The drawings and construction plans detailed in this 16-page PDF download take you through making the turned legs, headboard and footboard planks that double as structural rails, and cleats that are integral with the side railing design.
