A Great Woodworking Podcast

Click here for the most recent Rough Cut Show video!

If you are like me, hungry for another great woodworking podcast, you have to check out Thomas J. MacDonald aka T-Mac aka T-Chisel aka T-Chizzz on The Rough Cut Show. The show covers the construction of a beautiful Bombe Secretary in a unabashed style. He is an absolute blast to watch and there are some great learning points in every episode. More importantly, The Rough Cut Show “Ask The Masters” Forum has started a groundbreaking project. Approximately ten forum members are participating in a unique internet woodworking classroom collectively building a Crazy Leg Federal Table. The sole purpose of the project is to explore Federal style legs and embellishments such as stringing, banding, fans and inlayed bellflowers. So check it out and perhaps join the forum group and build your own Crazy Leg Federal Table!

Thanks for sharing this David.

I couldn’t watch episode 80, it kept quitting on me, but I watched 79. Like he admitted, he could use a little carving practice.

Nicely done videos.

Without a doubt, T-Chisel and the Rough Cut Show is the best podcast out there for the woodworker. Great content, beautiful projects and he has skills worth learning from. Check it out.
