Topic tags/keywords: thos moser boston

So I am in Boston for an EMS conference and we’re wandering around the Plaza Hotel and in the window I see a bunch of really nice furniture. Turns out Thos. Moser the cabinet maker has a bunch of pieces for sale in a storefront at the base of the hotel I am staying in….how cool is that!

I am going to try to go inside the store and take a closer look between sessions.

By the way Boston is a great city, my expectations (which were pretty high) have been far exceeded! The hotel is right by the Boston Common so you really get a feel for some of the the American history. So I am learning a lot about dispatching ambulances but I am also learning a lot about the history of the US…pretty cool.

The burrito shop we stopped at on Tuesday was phenomenal….I didn’t really associate Boston with burritos, but they were extremely tasty!

Sounds like fun and that furniture sounds interesting. Have fun.

Boston is a great “walking town”. My wife and I once walked the entire Freedom trail.

For a truly unique experience, check out Durgin-Park restaurant in Faneuil Hall. Great food, incredible atmosphere and famously grumpy waitresses. Expect to be seated at a long table with other people. Those other people could be college students, CEOs, celebrities or whatever.

It sure seems to be a great city. Had a bit of a break about 1400 so walked around a bit got to see a little bit more of the city. The number of people walking their dogs really surprised me, it seems Bostonians are really dog people :-)

Matt I sure am enjoying it, saw a tall ship under sail heading out, very impressive.

Rich, I’d like to take a tour out along the waterfront but I don’t think we’ll have time this trip, we’re in sessions right up until the plane leaves tomorrow afternoon :-(

Oh yeah… I walked by the Thos Moser display and there was nobody around so I couldn’t get in to see the pieces up close. Maybe tomorrow?

I’ve only seen Thos Moser furniture online. His style was recommended to me by Greg Paolini when I tool a class from him. I’d have to say that I hope – one day – I can make something like his stuff. Its about damn near perfect according to my tastes.
