Very nice box - nice craftsmanship

Re: Have you seen Tommy Mac's new woodworking show? Let us know what you think.

I stumbled across episode one (trestle table) while channel surfing and saw episode two (step stool) a couple of days ago. What appealed to me most are the attempts to show set up procedures, layouts and details on tools use. I'm not particularly interested in watching a table saw blade make its cut - but I am very interested in tips and techniques to set up up the saw for an accurate cut. Tommy shows some of this type detail and I hope there is more of this. If the show is for woodworkers the layouts, setups, and tool use tips are important. I agree Tommy talks a bit fast and has a few little unnerving speech habits ("hey guys" every other sentence is a bit distracting) but he's a wood worker, not an actor. I'm sure he'll smooth out his presentations and refine his personal speech quirks as he gains experience. The show has great potential. Tommy reminds me a bit of Roy Underwood trying to do every step live, on camera in less than 30 minutes. I guess that's why Roy always sports bandages on his fingers.
