Woodworker: Thomas Moser

Inspired by his love of Shaker furniture, Thomas Moser started his one-man shop in 1971. Today, Thomas Moser Cabinetmakers has nearly 100 skilled woodworkers. The “Continuous Arm” chair is one of the founder’s signature pieces. Moser crafted the Windsor chair out of cherry and ash and formed the arms with thin laminations from boards of the same tree. Each continuous arm was rasped, filed, and sanded to smoothness.
