Moser, and we offer a selection of timeless stool designs. All of our stools are offered in three standard stool seat heights to accommodate most counters and bars. In addition, we offer two stools, the Bowback and High Stool, in an 18” seat height for use as occasional seating or to comfortably pair with tables, desks, and vanities. Forty years is a long time to practice, and the result is a family of versatile, heirloom-quality stools guaranteed to please. 04 thosmoser.com/gift | 800 862 1973 Guaranteed to last a lifetime. To create the back crest of the Harpswell Stool, we begin with a three-inch-block of cherry, called a twelve-quarter by the lumber mills. As we carve into the block, swirling grain patterns emerge. Each crest is an individual canvas—no two are alike. When the seats are lined up together the effect is stunning. We’ve added our skill as joiners of wood, but nature has held the paintbrush. harpswell stool (opposite and left) 37-43h x 17w x 21d $1,575 $1,250 eastward stool (above) 38-44h x 20w x 22d $1,050 $900 800 862 1973 | thosmoser.com/gift 05 Guaranteed to last a lifetime. 06 thosmoser.com/gift | 800 862 1973 Like all of our furniture, we create our stools to be highly utilitarian with a reverence for material and workmanship that is almost unknown in these days of mass production.

We believe that stools should withstand generations of daily use and we build them accordingly. coal shovel stool (left) 25-31h x 19w x 18d $850 $600 high stool (center) 25-31h x 22w x 20d $975 $725 ellipse stool (right) 25-31h x 18-19w x 16d $800 $675 800 862 1973 | thosmoser.com/gift 07 sitting is believing: good design is ageless Our signature piece, the Continuous Arm Chair, remains a unique, trademarked Moser design. To form the arms eleven knife-cut slices of the same board just one-tenth of an inch thick, called flitch, are laminated together. Then each continuous arm is painstakingly rasped, filed and sanded to a perfect smoothness. 08 thosmoser.com/gift | 800 862 1973 Guaranteed to last a lifetime. Six years in the making, the Newport Chair is a worthy heir to its earlyAmerican design heritage. The simple yet sturdy form of a centuries old Windsor chair inspired our own 21st-century edition.

Back in the fall of 2007, we launched our first “Customer in Residence” program, a week long immersion into the Thos. Moser workshop environment. This program was inspired by one of our friends who asked if he could come into the workshop for a week or two to learn how to build something with his own two hands. Under the watchful eye of one of our craftspeople, he was able to take a simple design from start to finish all by himself. It was such a great experience, he encouraged us to offer it to others. Five years and over a hundred participants later, we are excited to complete our year-long celebration of our 40th anniversary with a Customer in Residence 2013 session giveaway*! Enter to win this week-long intensive internship crafting the piece of your choice and experience the process and satisfaction of building Moser furniture for yourself. Work side-by-side with a master cabinetmaker in our shop and learn about the intricacies of joinery, the shaping and molding of solid cherry and even how to bring out the natural luster of wood with the right amount of wax and elbow grease. Share your workshop experiences on a daily basis and enjoy two special group dinners with fellow attendees.
