Has anybody else just got their new issue of Woodshop News? Apparently a man named Thomas J. MacDonald is going to be starting a new woodworking show on PBS this fall.

http://www.thomasjmacdonald.com/index.html

There are some links to a few episodes of Bob Villa that he was in on his website. If the show comes together it will vary greatly from Norm’s show, as Thomas is younger and comes from a different skill set.

Looking forward to the pilot episode!

T-chisel is a great choice. Go look at his Bombe Secretary build and you will get an idea of how good he is. I imagine there will have to be a few audio edits for it to be on PBS. His podcasts are very informative. Can’t wait.

No name yet. I’m sure there will be some sort of announcement when it’s decided.
