Thomas Moser

Formerly a Bates college professor, Tom Moser left teaching in 1972 to restore the lost art of fine woodworking by making one-of-a-kind pieces of handmade furniture in an old Grange Hall in New Gloucester, Maine. Mary Moser, Tom’s wife, managed the selling and finances, while their four sons trained as young apprentices.
Today, the Moser family has grown from a one-man operation to comprise a community of nearly 70 skilled craftsmen. Like the wood used to make our furniture, we proudly accept our commitment to the sustainability of our workforce, their families and their communities.
