Chip Miller


With over 30 years in technical teaching and applied arts, Lemuel “Chip” Miller of DaKantie Studios has devoted his career to the development of the basic skills that enable furniture making, design and residential construction. Quick to embrace skills in woodworking, welding, metal fabrication, machine tool technology and computer numerical control machining, Chip is not afraid to experiment and reach for something different. Always keen to use local materials whenever possible, Miller is driven to design and build for the “new West”. Chip along with his wife Peggy of 35 years, raised their family in Oregon and Wyoming. Miller and his family have been indelibly influenced by the timeless craftsmanship and talented artisans inherent in Timberline Lodge on the side of Mount Hood, to the modern mountain architecture frequently showcased in Bend, Oregon, the simple lines of Frank Lloyd Wright and his homes that pepper the region, the modern influence of Charles and Ray Eames, and of course the humble design of the lodges of Yellowstone.

Miller and his family designed and built the custom home and shop on the Southfork that they call home. The home incorporates active solar design, radiant slab heating, expansive open living concepts and the beauty of natural light. His wife Peggy often contributes to the design of pieces that he produces and was solely responsible for the architectural design of their home and shop. Nothing is too small to produce or too large to take on. From up-cycle lighting made from discarded bottles, unique carved wall art, to bowls and platters small and large, dining room sets, writing desks, and custom beds and headboards, all create drive and inspiration.

Most recently, Chip and his wife Peggy have committed to the design, construction and outfitting of a ski house near Red Lodge, Montana.
