Rough Cut with Fine Woodworking

The Emmy-nominated series ROUGH CUT returns for season eight with new host Tom McLaughlin, who has been making and designing commissioned, custom furniture since 1990. In each half-hour episode, design inspiration is turned into easy-to-follow projects for woodworkers at every skill level. Tom teaches the latest wood crafting techniques, as well as tips and instruction for how to create projects that can be passed down for generations. Projects this season include: a craftsman-style dining chair in white oak; a Shaker-style hall table in cherry; a hanging bow front cabinet in American ash; a tilt-top round breakfast table in curly maple; a live-edge coffee table made from New England walnut; and much more.
