Meet the Cabinetmaker

  
  
  

One of the most common questions from our customers is: wanting to know created the Moser furniture in their home? Our June Mailer featured a profile on cabinetmaker Ron Gilbert, who works here in the shop and participated in our Customer in Residence program as a mentor.

Our hope is to continue profiling cabinetmakers to give customers a look behind the scenes at the skilled craftsmen and women crafting their family heirlooms. Be sure to check under your Moser furniture as you may just have a piece signed by one of the featured cabinetmakers...enjoy!
