Thos. Moser Furniture Custom Built for the Individual


The Meridian Sideboard shown above as an architectural rendering and drawing (click on image to enlarge) came about as a request from customer to add wine storage to the interior. We thought we would share it here as inspiration. It proves that aesthetics can co-exist beautifully with utility.

The challenge of creating one-of-a-kind pieces that manage to reflect the Thos. Moser commitment to utility, beauty, and simplicity is extremely rewarding. When we began making furniture in the local grange hall over thirty years ago, every piece was custom built for an individual, by an individual, with a specific need. Today many of those pieces are now some of our most popular standard designs.

We can modify the length, width, and height of our pieces. We’ll customize drawers and shelving to meet your precise requirements. Beds can be made for platform mattresses or lower footboards. If you require a unique design, we’ll work with you to draw the piece and ensure that it will be structurally sound. If you prefer another species of wood, we can substitute almost any hardwood of your choice.

Here is a sampling of a few custom case pieces we have built recently (click image to enlarge):


With everything we do, custom or standard, we intend to provide you with an heirloom you will treasure and pass down, crafted and delivered with the most personal and professional care we can offer. If you have unique needs for your home or work environment, we invite you to contact us directly.

Whether it is a modification of an existing design or something completely new, we are happy to custom design a solution that accommodates your unique requirements and singular dreams.


Nice stuff! A friend sent me the link to the Meridian Sideboard. She wants me to build her one. :P Do you sell plans for this item?

This is probably an idea that has been pitched to you many time, but one more can't hurt. 
Your furniture is astonishing, and I understand & appriciate your desire to keep your designs to yourselves. No doubt one reason is to ensure that no inferior knock-offs debase your reputation. 
Nevertheless, there are lots of people like me, amature woodworkers who would love to have some of your pieces, but simply can't afford your prices (no offense meant).  
Perhaps you could work with a reputable periodical, such as Woodsmith, or Fine Woodworking, to share a few of the more simplistic designs. That would allow a few more of us to appriciate the design while still savoring our own craftmanship. 
Best wishes, Joe

Thanks for the comment and for your interest in our work. While we don't currently have plans to sell/publish drawings of our designs, you might be interested to know that Tom Moser has authored several books that do include shop drawings of Shaker and other early American furniture designs. Look for "How to Build Shaker Furniture" and "Measured Shop Drawings". They can be found on <a href=http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=ntt_athr_dp_sr_1?_encoding=UTF8&sort=relevancerank&search-alias=books&field-author=Thos.%20Moser>Amazon and eBay.  
Thanks again for your interest!

It is a bit like asking a chef for the recipe to his signature dish, isn't it? I can see your fascination with the products though. This blog has some really impressive work featured in it.
