This is an edited version of Tom's lecture at the Woodworking in America Conference (edited to 17:39, entire lecture was about from hour), courtesy of the Sandal Woods blog...
From the Sandal Woods blog posting of the video...
Family, personal, and company memories flowed in Mr. Moser's presentation to an audience of several hundred at the banquet held during the conference. He was funny, affable, and down-to-earth; a perfect gentleman and the consummate businessman. The slide show journey brought the audience from the humble beginnings of Thos. Moser, Cabinetmakers, to the enormous success it is today.
A personal note: The description of the Moser's travels in Asia took Sandy and I back in time. Immediately following the dinner and speech we were lucky to run into Mr Moser and his wonderful wife Mary in the hallway. In passing them I asked him a short question about a certain locale in Asia, not wanting to detract from their conversation with someone else. His eyes lit up, and we spent the next 20 minutes together, reminiscing with relish about locales and details from our parallel journeys almost 20 years apart. This was a wonderful end to a terrific speech about the exciting life experience of Mr. Thomas Moser and his wonderful wife Mary.
My hope is that in this edited version of a one-hour speech you are able to also glean into the life the Mosers, and the company they have built. It is a great journey, filled with great successes and a few setbacks.

As a designer, David Moser is constantly challenging our paradigms, and his new Meridian Collection is certainly no exception. While Meridian is true to our company's core design ethos of creating forms that celebrate the natural beauty of wood and achieve grace through simplicity, David was clearly working outside the Moser "box" in developing this collection, drawing on contemporary design influences and for the first time utilizing ash as the primary wood species. That's one of the reasons it is gratifying to get positive feedback, not only from our customers but also from others who make their living following the world of furniture and home design.
This week in their Nesting blog, Cookie magazine tells us that they "couldn't help but fall in love" with Meridian. Please use the link below to check it out (and if you agree you can let them know by posting a comment!)...
With the debut of the September issue, Port City Life magazine officially became Maine magazine. On August 27, the new Maine magazine held a launch party to celebrate their introduction to the world at a newly built (and as of yet unoccupied) environmentally friendly office building at 100 Waterman Drive in South Portland. Many thanks to Maine magazine for this photo of our lounge space (click to enlarge).
We were pleased to be asked to represent the Maine design community, along with 4 local interior design firms (namely Brett Johnson, GF McGreggor, Spaces NB, and Banks Design Associates), by setting up one of five designer lounge spaces on the fourth floor.
The party attracted more than 600 folks from all over Maine, prompting the Portland Press Herald to call it "THE social event of 2009." The music, food, and the views were all spectacular. We'd like to congratulate publisher Kevin Thomas, editor Susan Kelley, and the entire Maine magazine staff for putting together a terrific event.
Thanks to our partners at SunScapes, Lighting Concepts, and Flora Home for their help with our lounge space.
For those who missed it, below are two short video clips of the designer lounge spaces and of the party itself...
