Fine Woodworking brings you ROUGH CUT
Season 8 coming this spring. New host, same great show
We are excited to announce that we are partnering with WGBH Boston to bring Rough Cut to public television stations across the country. The popular TV show has a new host for 2018, Tom McLaughlin, a longtime woodworker and teacher and a member of the New Hampshire Furniture Masters. Tom will be demonstrating a variety of techniques as he builds close to a dozen projects. Join Tom in his expansive New Hampshire shop as we usher in a new season of woodworking. See it on national public television in April 2018.
In each half-hour episode, unusual design inspiration is turned into easy-to-follow projects for woodworkers at every skill level. Host Tom McLaughlin teaches the latest wood crafting techniques, as well as tips and instruction for how to create projects that can be passed down for generations. “What I like most about fine woodworking is the power to say something beautiful without words,” says host Tom McLaughlin. Tom will be joined by expert guests, including frequent contributors to Fine Woodworking, who will help demonstrate a particular technique. Each project will be created out of a beautiful hardwood garnered from the woods of New England.
Projects this season will include: A Craftsman-style dining chair in white oak; a Shaker-style hall table in cherry; a hanging bow front cabinet in American ash; an Adirondack-inspired lawn chair in cypress; a tilt-top round breakfast table in curly maple; a Shaker blanket chest with drawer in cherry; a live-edge coffee table made from New England walnut, and much more.
