Thos. Moser: Artistry in Wood
Feted by aficionados of woodcraft for his reverence of historical forms and traditions, attention to elegant proportions, and devotion to exquisite detail, Thomas Moser has achieved the highest quality in the creation of fine furniture. Here, in his own words, the world-renowned woodworker recounts the history of his workshop, Thos. Moser Cabinetmakers, and provides insight into the philosophy, materials, and processes that are the foundation of his style. Moser furniture references Arts and Crafts, Mission, Shaker, and Japanese styles, but is always completely original and meticulously hand-finished. Lavishly illustrated with over 300 full-color and black-and-white photographs and shop drawings, this is a sumptuous celebration of a master artisan and his oeuvre.

Thos. Moser: artistry in woodUser Review - Book Verdict
Former college professor Moser began furniture making more than a quarter century ago, and artistry of design and quality of craftsmanship remain signatures of his company, Thos. Moser Cabinetmakers of Auburn, ME. This volume is an exploration of the man, the career, and the company, as Moser himself moves away from daily operations. After a humorous foreword by Andy Rooney, five chapters co-written by Moser and Lemley (a woodworker and journalist) give an overview of the legendary company. The first two chapters, "Origins" and "A Covenant with Wood," present a focused and concise exploration of the beauty of the Moser furniture. The next three emphasize the company itself and are more specifically useful to the woodworker. More than 300 full-color photographs demonstrate the textual points, and whimsical design drawings and construction details appear as well. Less a woodworker's manual than a celebration of the artful designs, this delightful volume is an inspiring coda to this artist's career. The only caveat: an index would have been useful. Highly recommended for all furniture collections.-Alex Hartmann, INFOPHILE, Williamsport, PA ...
