Hi All,

My wife’s uncle had taken down some Cherry trees on his property in PA. He’s had the wood drying for a little more than two year in a barn. My wife really wanted new side tables for the living room and really wanted them made with this wood. She found a table she liked in a Thos Moser catalog and off I went. I added a curly maple drawer front just to break up all the cherry and finished the entire project with Boiled Linseed Oil. So here they are and sorry for the horrible pictures.

Built to  last

Very nice. Thos. Moser has some fine looking furniture, but I really like that curly maple drawer front and it didn’t cost thousands of dollars either.

Thanks guys. I was introduced to Thos. Moser stuff by my sister who’s bought a bunch of chairs from him. She also bought a dining room table from Shackleton Furniture. Their stuff is unbelievable too but again really expensive.

I do understand their prices. A lot of work goes into these tables. I spent a lot of time just trying to find the right boards fo the project. My selection was limited by the boards I got from my wife’s uncle but I think the wood was turned out nicely.

The maple against the cherry is a nice contrast. I was recently turned on to Moser and like it quite a bit. I have to get some more woodworking experience since the only way I can afford a Moser piece is the make a replica myself!

This is why I build them and not buy them although their work is unbelievably nice. I could never replicate some of their pieces. I watched a This Old House episode where they furnished an entire house with their furniture!! Wow to have that much money.
