Laura B…. ‘’Nobody Does It Better…’’
"We did a major home renovation and Birdie created the charm that was desperately needed. He and his very capable team crafted our magical kitchen, constructed an amazing cherry paneled family room, and built our library entertainment center and all the cabinetry in our bathrooms. First, let me say that Birdie is a delight to work with. First and foremost, he listens, grasps your desire and gently suggests ways to improve on the project. His attention to detail is second to none. He is meticulous by nature, timely in his effort and a teacher throughout the process. His product not only has the "WOW" factor, but also endures the test of time."
Florence M… ‘’The Antique Butcher Block…’’.
"The centerpiece of my kitchen is a butcher block salvaged from my friend’s former butcher shop. It had been resurfaced many times over the years and was no longer usable for butchering. The top was uneven and worn, and it was too low to use as a work center. Clearly, it needed to be made more functional. A kitchen designer told me she knew just the man for the job--Birdie Miller. He promptly returned my email and got to work on the project. He leveled some of the top, made a thick, solid maple shelf to rest on the bun feet he added to bring it to a workable height. He distressed the finish to match the original and retain the aged look of the piece. The finish is as smooth as silk. My friends can’t believe the renovations this old, butcher block went through. It looks like it would have looked 75+ years ago. Birdie was a joy to work with from start to finish. He’s an outstanding cabinetmaker and master artisan. I highly recommend him."
Linda von T… ‘’A Wonderful Project…’’
"I was looking for a cabinet maker to turn my builder special house into a custom home. Birdie Miller has helped to make that happen. He helped me to choose the right style of woodwork and then put that woodwork into ‘fourteen’ rooms of my home. It took a while but I now live in exactly what I've always wanted! Thank you Birdie Miller”!
Vincent D…. ‘’Stunning, Natural and Unique…’’
"Birdie is a master craftsman! In our case, he transformed a felled walnut tree into a stunning 12 ft. conference table. Showcasing a few well-placed natural imperfections Birdie made the piece a splendid example of nature's unique beauty. Birdie not only has the eye and hand of perfection he puts passion into his craft. We also found him to work with us regarding our timing need. We've worked with Birdie a few times now and give a huge thumbs up.”
Mary B…. ‘’Birdie loves a challenge…’’
"Birdie took my undefined vision for a new kitchen and made it a reality. Over the years, he has built two kitchens, a front entrance way, custom planters, a cabana interior, various cabinets, a family heirloom dining room table and custom trim work. Give him a project and you'll receive plans and step by step pictures of the project as it takes shape."
Patricia D…. ‘’The cabinet fits just perfect…’’
“The cabinet fits just perfect. All your little "cut out" details make a huge difference. Everything is so neat and tidy, no plugs or cables showing. We bolted it to the wall right away. It's really great looking, a naturally beautiful & unique piece we will always enjoy. It's so sturdy too. Keep up the good and creative work. I have other ‘hard to fit’ areas in this house. Thanks for creating such a cool piece.”
Shelley H… ‘’We’ll treasure this cabinet for years to come…’’.
“Birdie was a joy to work with and we couldn’t be more pleased with the end result. We’ll treasure this cabinet for years to come. I would highly recommend Birdie and would be happy to work with him again”.
Jerry E… ‘’A jewel of a source for custom cabinetry and furniture…’’
“Birdie and his team do it all. They are passionate about wood and always strive to use it to its best advantage. From custom wall units to detailed bars to one-of-a-kind tables - their work is precisely constructed, beautifully finished and meticulously installed. Birdie and his team are a pleasure to work with - a collaborative spirit, a willingness to do what needs to be done and a seemingly unending knowledge of how things work make the process stress-free. The studio environment of the shop adds to the experience. I have been very pleased with the projects we have done together.
Birdie Miller is an artesian and craftsman. He turns wood into creative and functional works of art.”
Stephen P.… ‘Birdie's strengths is that he is open to ideas …’’
“Birdie Miller has done several projects for us, the two most prominent being original tables made in part from wood we brought to him with nothing other than a vague idea of what could be done. With a touch of collaboration -- one of Birdie's strengths is that he is open to ideas -- he produced magnificent works that we admire daily (and which are commented on by almost every guest we entertain). We are not the easiest to please, and call 'em like we see 'em, and were happy indeed with Birdie's work/art.”
Virginia Z… ‘’Birdie Miller- creative and talented…’’!!!
“Birdie Miller has built many pieces of furniture for our family. Not always knowing what we want- he has drawn up many plans and given us many ideas as to how the project can be done. We have been so pleased by his work- that sometimes we have told him- just make it! His latest project for us was a bar/kitchen and bathroom vanity. It was for our new addition- an indoor pool and spa room- which he actually also helped to design. It is very cool! Birdie - like his furniture- is one of a kind.”
Kathleen B… ‘’We recommend Birdie Miller Designs…’’
“My husband and I have used Birdie for two projects in our home. He designed and installed a wonderful cabinet/sideboard combination for our unusual living room/dining room space. He was able to look at our existing handmade furniture and design cabinets to complement their style. He helps us choose beautiful woods and hardware and had excellent suggestions to make the design functional as well a stunningly beautiful. Everyone who sees it is in awe, yet it complements and does not overwhelm the room. We have also used Birdie to refinish some of our handmade fine wood furniture. Incredibly the furniture looks better than it was when we got in new.”
Deb K… ‘’Birdie is a master craftsman and artist, in the truest sense of the word…’’
“You can count on Birdie Miller for high-quality work, but as a client, I really appreciate his ongoing communication and commitment to the timeline, daily updates on the work that will be done and gentle reminders of what I need to do to keep things on track and perhaps most importantly, sticking to a very efficient timeline. Excellent work, customer-friendly and very clean - what more could you want?”
Nanette B… ‘’Thanks to Birdie Miller our kitchen was transformed… to Timeless & Amazing…’’
“Thanks to Birdie Miller Inc. our kitchen was transformed from 1982 Formica to Timeless Amazing! We wanted an ‘Ah Factor’, something that was unique yet simple. A kitchen that would blend with our life, style of our home, and complement existing wood in adjoining living area.
Every inch of my kitchen is important to me, and now none of it is wasted. Birdie suggested large drawers in lieu of bottom cabinet doors which left me with even more useable, accessible and convenient storage space. In addition he shortened the upper cabinets to achieve a true contemporary, open feel.
He recessed a flat screen TV, removed a wall, enlarged a window and we moved a basement access door from inside the kitchen to the living room wall. He customized the trim with the same detail as the original woodwork in the rest of the house, oak with walnut inlays. You would never know the door was not there originally. Our old tile kitchen floor was removed and replaced with matching grain wood floor, again blending beautifully.
The first compliment came before the kitchen was even completed. When our appliance installers arrived I waited outside, hearing from friends who have redone their kitchens, that this is the tricky part, this is where you have all the “fit” problems. One of the installers came over to me and said he had to ask, who our builder is. Of course with apprehension I asked why….and he said they were all done, every appliance fit perfectly, no adjustments needed, everything level, and ready to go. I think his quote was “this never happens this easily” “everything fits like a glove”. Simply amazing!
I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, and love every minute of it!”
S Moncrief, ‘’I’m absolutely thrilled with the results…’’
I hired Birdie Miller to renovate my barn to an office/studio space, and am absolutely thrilled with the results. He understood my budget constraints, offered excellent creative ideas and solutions to my design, and went above-and-beyond to create a beautiful result. It was easy for me to collaborate with him in developing the design and materials sourcing. He arrived with his crew every day, and the project was completed on time and within budget. I really liked that he and his crew focused on my project until it was done, and didn't try to scatter their efforts on multiple jobs at the same time. Birdie takes great pride in his work and considers every project a work of art. And it shows in the results.
Jane Mathews, ‘’professional and pleasant…’’
Birdie Miller made a beautiful table base for me. He was very professional and pleasant. I provided a picture of the table base and he provided me sample wood with the stain to confirm the color.
Elizabeth Guest Interiors, LLC, ‘’The results could not have been better…’’
I called on Birdie Miller Designs to build a high-end custom cabinet that I had designed for my client's living room project. The results could not have been better - his aesthetic, quality control, and artistic eye are in keeping with how I like to do things, and this cabinet has proven it beyond a doubt. All the small details do not go unnoticed – the way the wood grain patterns line up and complement each other in all areas, even on the inside of the door frames, the figured wood patterns which match, the stain color, the accuracy of the crown molding fitting to the room’s molding, the wood trim around the wire inserts, and the extra design detail of figured wood just below the crown molding – beautiful.
His skill is matched by his professionalism, with lots of communication between us to clarify any of my design details and specifications, and questions occurring throughout the project's duration.
Birdie is a highly skilled craftsman and artist, I would recommend him without reservation to anyone looking to create a special and lasting piece!
Alex, ‘’If you are looking for a unique and inspiring…’’
If you are looking for a unique and inspiring piece then Birdie Miller Designs is your place. When I decided to open a second gym, I really wanted to make a statement for our clients as I wanted them to feel inspired every time they walked into the facility. I was looking to create an urban/industrial front desk that was like no other that I had seen before. It needed to have a strong balance of metal and wood as I wanted it to be strong but not unapproachable.
When I first approached Birdie with the idea, I was a little hesitant as much of his work at the time was with wood. However, after seeing the diagrams of the proposed desk, he said to me that he could absolutely create the look I was going for. He sourced materials from various locations and the final product was absolutely amazing. 3 years later to this day, the desk continues to wow people when they walk in and it's always a pleasure for me to share its beginnings.
If and when the time arises, I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to Birdie again!
Jane Siegel, ‘’The quality is top notch and his installers were professional…’’
I was fortunate to find Birdie Miller Designs on the internet and was impressed with his designs. With my idea he created a dining room buffet and wall piece in two fabulous wood grains. After 34 years in my home, I decided to redecorate the dining room and his pieces are the focal point of the room, like a fine piece of art. The quality is top notch and his installers were professional, clean and experts. My husband and I are thrilled with the finished product.
Arnold, ‘’Birdie communicated with me in the design phase through construction…’’
Birdie Miller and his superior craftsmen made a highly unique and beautiful walnut/maple bench for me. Birdie communicated with me in the design phase through construction and even the crating, delivery, and proper procedure for removing the bench from the crate. He provided dozens of photos of the whole process, which was very enlightening. It was a fantastic experience working with Birdie on my prized bench.
Bob Cangemi, ‘’I knew from the moment we first met him, he was the man…’’
Birdie is a pure gem. I knew from the moment we first met him, he was the man! We had been unsuccessful in finding someone to make us a pantry for our kitchen. We had a large wall that we were converting to a pantry, styling it in a barn wood and using an old cabinet window door as the focal point. Birdie listened to our needs and wants, showed us some woods that we fell in love in with, then designed and built us the most stunning pantry. We could not be happier and enjoy it every single day. Everyone is in awe, admiring the craftsmanship. We couldn't be happier with our lovely pantry.
We couldn't wait to start another project with Birdie, so he is working on a shelving cabinet for a bathroom.
Birdie and his team are simply amazing and a pleasure to work with.
Murals & Moldings LLC, ‘’Birdie Miller delivered the job over and above expectations…’’.
There are other woodworking companies who have years of experience, offer precision craftsmanship and deliver the product on time. I hired Birdie Miller Designs for an installation that required, in addition to that, a sensitivity to the architecture of the space and an ability to work creatively within unusual parameters.
Birdie Miller delivered the job over and above expectations.
John Halderman, ‘’There is nothing like having a skilled furniture maker…’’
Birdie is a master craftsman who was invaluable in designing and building a restoration of our 18th Century Bucks County farmhouse. There is nothing like having a skilled furniture maker crafting your kitchen cabinets and restoring your floors and woodwork. His design and workmanship made the job look as if it had always been there. Birdie and his excellent team were highly efficient and brought the job in on time and on budget. Highly recommended.
Pamm Kerr, ‘’I love his work so much…’’
Birdie has been creating furniture for us for around 25 years. He has done everything from creating a traditional, glass-doored display cabinet and armed, dining room chairs to creating unusual, contemporary furniture, and most recently a front door, based on our design ideas. His craftsmanship is always perfect. I love his work so much, I advocated that a local library have Birdie create a special circulation desk for them. I would recommend Birdie Miller's work to anyone.
Dana Heirs, ‘’details make a huge difference…’’
The cabinet fits just perfect. All your little "cut out" details make a huge difference. Everything is so neat and tidy, no plugs or cables showing. We bolted it to the wall right away. It's really great looking, a naturally beautiful & unique piece we will always enjoy. It's so sturdy too. Keep up the good and creative work. I have other ‘hard to fit’ areas in this house. Thanks for creating such a cool piece.” Birdie Miller was a pleasure to work with. He focused on all the specifics I had in mind and figured out how to turn them into a reality. He was very professional, kept me informed, asked for my feedback and completed the project in a timely manner. An all-around positive experience.
Kate Hartford, ‘’Birdie delivered on time and on budget and was a pleasure to work with…’’
Birdie and team built us THE most beautiful book-matched walnut dining room table you have ever seen. It is huge! We sit around it as a family and admire it's beauty. The grain, the base, a true work of art. Birdie delivered on time and on budget and was a pleasure to work with. I can't tell you all the wonderful meals and family occasions we have celebrated on Birdie's beautiful table.
If you want an heirloom, a piece of furniture that will last for generations, Birdie is you man. -Kate and Jeff Hartford
Barb, ‘’Birdie Miller truly does custom wood…’’
Very pleased with the finished kitchen. Birdie Miller truly does custom wood. He was able to match the door trim, already existing in hallway, perfectly with mahogany inlays. No one would ever know it was not there originally. He handpicked the oak floor boards to match our attached living room area, so again, no one would ever guess that floor had been replaced. When we had the 8 new appliances installed, Birdie was there to oversee the day. The installers both related to me that they have never had an install go off so seamlessly. Every appliance fit like a glove. His computer designs allowed me to choose how to use the space most efficiently, and esthetically. I got 100% use of all space, and a kitchen that now gives our home the wow factor.
Koble Designs, ‘’nothing short of stunning…’’
Birdie designed and finished two bathroom vanity cabinets. His work is impeccable. He is very precise and the cabinets fit perfectly. They were finished in a trompe l'oiel that is nothing short of stunning. They are beautiful one of a kind cabinets that get many compliments.
D. Hopewell, ‘’Excellent construction and finish…’’
Birdie Miller constructed and install a custom designed bathroom vanity and interior wall paneling for my master bath. Excellent construction and finish.
Elizabeth Stothoff, ‘’You name it - he can help design it…’’
I have had the pleasure of working with Birdie on a variety of projects in my home (traditional farmhouse) since 2012. His work has included paneling (curved), a double bathroom vanity, cabinetry, a fireplace mantel, restoring hand hewn beams, and a 14 foot long live edge black walnut dining table. You name it - he can help design it, make it, install it and consistently exceed expectations. People cross rooms in my home to get a closer look at his work!
His skill is amazing and it is so nice to be able to support a local business.
Kelly Z., ‘’I have several pieces in my home…’’
Birdie Miller is a very talented cabinetmaker. He builds beautiful furniture and unique designs. I've seen his kitchen, office, tables and bedroom designs in my family's home and they are just beautiful. I have several pieces in my home that he made for me - custom kitchen stools and a corner sink cabinet for my tiny powder room. Both are beautiful!
