Building Furniture in Auburn, ME

Why Go Now: New England cabinetmakers Thos. Moser hosts a small number of travelers per session for its new Customer-in-Residence program, a weeklong tutorial in crafting a piece of furniture out of environmentally sound American cherry. Travelers—in search of a career change, gifts for the grandkids, or just a new place to sit down—learn to master fine woodworking tools by day. At night, they’re free to explore the nearby coastal town of Freeport, where the entire class stays in the historic Harraseeket Inn.

To Book: Contact Thos. Moser directly.
