Jeff Miller is a longtime contributor. His most recent book, based on years of work and teaching, is The Foundations of Better Woodworking (2012, Popular Woodworking Books). Jeff teaches and builds furniture in his shop (furnituremaking.com) on Chicago’s north side, a few blocks from Lake Michigan. He is working on a prototype for a new line of chairs. And in his spare time, he produces numerous articles and books, including Children’s Furniture Projects and Beds, both from The Taunton Press. Previous career? “Concert trumpeter in the Singapore Symphony Orchestra” (no joke). Most unique tool? “One of my bandsaws is a Jones Superior (made here in Chicago) dating back to 1909, as best I can tell. It has 36-in. wooden wheels.”
