Editor Asa Christiana met up with Tommy MacDonald this morning at the IWF. We found a quiet corner (not easy to do here) so that they could talk about Tommy’s new WGBH woodworking show, Rough Cuts. Filming of the first season is already complete and Tommy tells us about some of the projects he made, the folks who visited him on set, and gives other insights into the show. They also discuss how Tommy got started in woodworking and the influence of Norm Abram. Take a look and keep an eye out for Tommy in an upcoming issue of the magazine–he’s writing another article for us.

Bruce, you should post pictures of your stool in the gallery. We'd love to see it. -Gina
Asa.. Great interview with Tommy. I can't wait to see the Rough Cut with Tommy Mac show and your companion article. With Tommy's excitement, I'm sure the show will be great. I look forward to seeing the companion article appear in FWW. I built the step stool you guys wrote about. That was a fun project to build.
def looking forward to this!
