Product Description

From Library Journal

These are the first two volumes of a "Step-by-Step" furniture project series intended to number "more than ten." Each finely constructed volume is an in-depth exploration by a woodworking expert of the title project. Miller's Beds delineates nine projects; Barrett's Bookcases, 11. Both authors explain the basics of woodworking, safety issues, materials lists, cut lists, and measured drawings. And both emphasize process as much as result; the authors each weigh the advantages and disadvantages of the use of certain joints and joinery techniques, for example, and they explain a variety of different designs. Each volume is lavishly illustrated with photographs, line drawings, charts, and the like. The depth of this series makes it more useful than the recent "HomeTime" series. Highly recommended.AAlexander Hartmann, Bloomsburg Univ. Lib., PA

I am in the process of finishing up the bed shown on the cover of this book. It is the first bed and biggest project I have ever made since I have a samll shop and limited tools. It turns out beautifully that even surprises myself. Jeff Miller gives detailed instructions, design and material list that makes the project a easy task. I happen to have a mortise machine that makes the mortises for the slats much easier and nicer. Also, after I visited a local store, I easily changed dimensions of the bed to suit personal taste. I really enjoyed making this bed.

The whole series of these book's (desks, bookcase, tables, beds) is a must for all woodworkers.
I built the Pencil Post Bed out of this book and will be working on another of the bed projects soon. I like the paperback style easy to read and comfortable to work with. The is a good mix of projects in these books some high end and some fairly basic, good detail on techniques and alternative constructive methods. Pictures are for the most part good. Only drawback in some places I'd like to see a bit more explanation in some places.

This book gave me the confidence to build a bed. I chose Jeff's most basic design and it went smoothly. I would not say this book is for the complete novice however. I had oversight from an experienced woodworker. Nevertheless, Jeff is a good writer with nice pictures. And opinions. The great thing about Tauton Press books is that they get experts to share their insights and opinions that you simply do not get from people like Time-Life
The projects range in style, and they are all pleasing.

Format: Paperback
"BEDS" by Jeff Miller provides an indepth look at the design and construction of nine beds, ranging from beginner to advanced skill levels. Complete cut lists for all of the projects are provided with detailed drawings and descriptions for joinery, technique and several construction options. Dozens of color photographs add to the readers understanding of each bed project and are accompanied by a detailed step-by-step description for building.
Many of the projects are also accompanied by detailed drawings and instructions for making jigs to help the user with difficult cutting, routing and shaping - a detail often overlooked by other books like this.
Jeff's designs represent well thought out variations on several classic bed designs and place an emphasis on clean lines and proportions, solid construction and attention to detail.
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in buiilding their own bed, or to simply learn about what goes into the design and construction of fine handcrafted furniture.

An excellent book on bed construction. I built the pencil post bed that Jeff has in his book and the plans and advise were easy to follow. It came out looking great!
A good book for the beginner to the experienced woodworker. Excellent color pictures and instructions for each type of bed.
I recommend it highly to anyone who is going to think about building or commissioning a bed project.
Thanks Jeff if you read this!
