How exciting! He seems like he will be a nice addition to the PBS lineup.

Question: Splintered Board’s blog says

Follow a novice woodworker on his journey to becoming an accomplished furniture maker/designer

I’m pretty sure that Tommy is already an accomplished furniture maker, so what journey is there to follow?

Looks like Glen Huey over at Popular Woodworking picked up the story too now:

I really hope this works out! Tommy would make a great host for a show! I know because he is already a great host of own podcasts and dvds!

Okay – I have to ask the obvious question – Is this the intended replacement for the New Yankee Woodshop?

I just saw this Rough Cuts show on PBS the other night. It was great!!!!! At first, I thought it was going to be awful but I learned so much. I’m about to start on my dining room table and I loved the tips. Especially the table top glue up trick. The finishing tips were helpful too. I’ve been playing around with a bunch of finishes but haven’t tried a wax yet.

I’m not going to say this guy is better than Norm but I can’t think of a New Yankee show that taught me as much in one episode. Looking forward to the next show. And a repeat for that matter.

When is the show coming to the Louisville, KY area? I haven’t seen it on our KET channels yet.
