Welcome to the Thomas Miller Furniture,
"I Love Wood" is the sign on my work shop door that I open every working day. Sometimes I walk right by and don't see it and other times I take notice and smile. For more than 30 years I've designed and made furniture and still get excited over the possibilities beautiful wood has to offer. From reproducing some great antique pieces to getting "artsy" my artisan skills and creative design have evolved and that's thanks to you my customers, for requesting a custom made piece.
After a University of Denver engineering degree I followed my boyhood passion to play hockey in the NHL. In a six year professional career I played in Detroit and Long Island as well as several minor league cities from Omaha to New Haven.
After hockey we settled into our home on a farm in southern Ontario. I began in earnest honing my skills restoring antiques and learning the cabinetmaker's craft. Passion number two was starting to take root ... making furniture.
Working with your ideas, designing, building, and finally finishing your treasure puts another smile on my face. I promote local Canadian hardwoods like tiger and Birdseye maple, cherry, or walnut and use recycled eastern white pine to create unique pieces of history. Call me green.
Building and buying quality furniture is one of the best investments we can make. A bed or table that is used every day should be a joy to own forever. Using traditional joinery, the finest materials and paying attention to details defines Thomas Miller Furniture.
