I used to tape it regularly, but now can't find it in Los Angeles, Ca or the Orange county PBS stations... I live in Valencia, Ca. and have Dishnetwork... Anybody else find it around here?
I just finished watching "this Old House" & got to wondering about "The New Yankee Workshop" since it had been years since I have been able to watch TV on a Sat. morning. I went searching & found out that Norm is no longer on but that "Rough Cut" had replaced it.
Now I find out that "Rough Cut" is not being broad cast in Virginia where I reside. I would like to see this show being broadcast on PBS in Virginia.
I just checked with Channel 8 (PBS) in Phoenix.
Programming said it was scheduled to start on 1/3/2012. It will be broadcast on Tuesday and Saturday at 0800, 1600 and 2200 . For people using Cox that will be on channel 1008 .
For NY (I'm in Central NJ)the show airs on WLIW (Chanels 21 and 470 on Fios) Saturdays at 10:00 am beginning October 8th.
Rough Cut was playing on our PBS station on Saturdays. I set my DVR to record but have not gotten any new ones in quite a few weeks. Is it off season? Will it return? By the way, I live in Las Vegas (Henderson actually), Nevada.
I live in Northwest Indiana and I found 'Rough Cuts' on PBS WYCC-20 (Chicago) via Dish Network. The next episode (#2) is scheduled to air on Feb. 12 at 3 p.m. CST.
Cannot find "Rough Cut" on Dish network nor on any of my local Alabama PBS stations.
I live in Warrenton, Va and subscribe to DirectTV. We don not get Rough Cut. Here's hoping that eventually we will get it.
Rocky Mountain PBS
"Create TV" channel
Starts Rough Cut at 9PM on Dec 27!
Memphis, TN -WKNO TV 10 is airing the show at 8 AM on Saturdays.
I am in Indianapolis, Indiana and shared with friends the new woodworking show called Rough Cut. I was quite impressed with this show and wanted to show my woodworking friends the program. Much to the disappointment of all of us it is not on the PBS station down here, WFYI. I would like to request that WFYI show your program!!!!!
Vermont Public Television carried Rough Cut on November 20th and it is scheduled again on December 4th according to the schedule showing on DirecTV.
I emailed KVCR (Los Angeles) and they will begin Saturday January 1
No tommy here in southern indiana, just woodsmith and reruns of old nyw.
Not playing in Erie, PA. We have The Woodsmith Shop, thanks to me suggesting it last year, and reruns of the New Yankee Workshop, but no Tommy who ?
Repeated, not repeaded, Sorry
Please lose the repeaded use of "guys". It is annoying, to listen to and makes you sound stupid as does Ming Tsai on Simply Ming. Most of the time it can just be eliminated, the rest of the time there is a real word that can be used. Like I really can't stand like listening to your show, like you have a really bad habit of like using Guys like all the time.
Not showing here in Denver! this pbs station( KRMA channel 6)would rather put that piece of crap Bill Moyers and that stupid purple dinosaur on rather than a good education show for adults
Nashville, TN - Channel 8 (wnpt.org) Saturday 4:00 PM CST.
Hi all, thanks for weighing in. I updated the list with your feedback. I'll keep an eye on this post and update it with any additional information from the community. Thanks for helping to build this list. Gina, FineWoodworking.com
I did a google search on my local PBS station in Pensacola, FL (WSRE), went to their website and found the "Schedule", then searched for Rough Cut. The first episode airs this coming Saturday (Oct 23) at 1:30 Central.
I live in a suburb of Chicago and have Comcast cable not available now.
Playing on PBS in NC Saturdays @ 3pm
not being aired on WQED 13 in Pittsburgh. They were not even aware of it, and stated they have no current plans to do so. But they still asked for money so that MAYBE it will someday be aired - sorry, its already funded by taxpayer dollars, and Woodcraft paid for three seasons to be filmed, so nothing from me.
they do play American Woodshop (which I cannot stand) and occasionally Roy Underhill.
PBS needs to get with the times and offer it on some sort of streaming webcast too.
When or what stations carry Rough Cut in the Atlanta, Ga. market?
I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia and I searched all listings and it is NOT playing - I use Service Electric Cable Vision in the Birdsboro area.
I have two "local" PBS affiliates. Rough Cuts airs Saturdays at 4:30PM on WGBH Ch 2 in Boston (originating station for the show; it also airs at different times on other WGBH-related stations). It airs Wednesdays at 12:30PM on the various New Hampshire PBS stations.
Show is on at 9am on Saturdays on Twin Cities Public Television (TPT2)
It's also on CET on Saturday afternoons at 5:00pm and ThinkTV Channel 14 on Sundays at 7:30am in Cincinnati.
Just checked Oregon Public Broadcasting web site and, though they list the show in their programs listing, there are no episodes scheduled in the next 60 days. Bummer...
It's broadcasted on MPT (Maryland Public Television) at 10:30am every Saturday since 10/2. You can catch the signal OTA in northern Virginia as well.
I watched the second show last week end, and it was great. Love it!
I got an email from Georgia Public Broadcasting (channel 8 on free airwaves and also on DirecTV) saying that it will be on Saturdays at 12:30 PM beginning 11-06-10.
North Carolina - WUNC - 3pm Sat
Maybe that link will work...
I live in Lansing Michigan.
I exchanged some e-mails with a programming assistant @ WKAR (East Lansing) & she indicated they will show it early next year on their "Create" channel, but for right now it's not on.
In the central valley of California it would appear that it is not being shown. I did email the local PBS station some time ago requesting the Rough Cut be added to the line up. The response, "We will take it under advisement"

In this video Michael finishes the first of the three boxes. Gluing-up, planing, sanding and finishing bring a new piece of art to the world.

Michael begins carving the saddle lid box with his ripple pattern along the top. Then turns to his 5/30 gouge to texture the sides of the box. This isn't work…
