Location: Thos. Moser DC Showroom

Washington, DC 20007

About our host: 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.  Today, the Moser family has grown from a one-man operation to comprise a community of nearly 70 skilled craftsmen. Since 1987, Thos. Moser has called its nationally-recognized Auburn, Maine, workshop home.  The DC location is one of 6 showrooms that allows customers to see and experience the results of the company's work firsthand.
