Completed September 2006. A Thos. Moser design, this buffet and hutch are made from cherry. It was the first major case piece that I didn’t use plywood, even on the back or the drawer bottoms. I’m very happy with the way it turned out. It has darkened several shades with the sunlight and looks great next to my cherry trestle table and benches.

I’m a newby, so I can’t comment on style or technique, but I can say that I love the way this looks. Very clean lines. While I appreciate the skill it takes to do inlay, elaborate carvings etc, I prefer this look.

Very impressive!

Sandra, I really like Moser’s designs. The clean lines are his strong point. I’ve made many of his pieces to include the New Century buffet and hutch, six bow back chairs, the round ring extension table, two Eastward benches, the trestle table, two Eastward bar stools, and the seven-drawer dresser. Once I complete my new lathe’s dust collection hood, I will build his New Gloucester rocker. This winter, I’ll build his Dr. White’s chest for my daughter’s wedding present.

This is a beautiful piece of furniture. Great work, even greater attention to detail. Thomas Moser couldn’t have done any better himself.
Thanks for showing, a great inspiration to others.

Very nice. How did you attach the hutch to the base?

I came up from the inside of the buffet with a connector bolt in each corner. These screw into brass threaded inserts screwed into the bottom of the hutch. I made the hole through the buffet top slightly oversized so that alignment isn’t so much of a hassle. Here’s a link to the connector bolt

Here’s a link to the threaded insert:

Here’s a link to the insert wrench.

It helps to countersink the hole before screwing the insert into place. Otherwise, it will peel up a good chunk of wood.
