I’m quite excited to see the first edition of season 2 of Rough Cut tomorrow.

I think Tommy has received a lot of input and I believe he will be making improvements in his second season.

I enjoyed season one but there were times when it was a little “rough”. Maybe this year they can change the name to “fine cut”.

I too was critical of him in the first season,however I feel this year will be much better. I wish him the best this year.

Our local PBS station carried only two episodes last year :-( Maybe they will carry the whole season this year.

I tried to watch several of his shows last year. I too hope they change the pace.

Last season, my local public television station carried the entire season of Rough Cut. This morning I learn that they are not carrying the second season. I’m really bummed.

I guess I’ll have to wait to see because they are collecting donations again today and I guess it’s the only day and time that they can ever do it …. (Saturdays , during the woodworking time slots)
It would be one thing if the shows aired more than once a week , but they must know that we’re patient people for the most part . LOL

Last year my PBS station carried several episodes, and then apparently dropped it. I havent been able to find it anywhere. Too bad…I enjoyed it, but like others have said, he needs to slow down the talk a bit. I also couldnt figure out why he calls it Rough Cut. In the cabinet making world, I would think they would have used a better name.

Ive got my DVR set! I still go back to the season 1 episode on finishes routinely before i finish a project. Thanks for the heads up Rich, and thanks TMac for your hard work.

I am pretty forgiving with woodworking hosts, mostly feeling happy that there is any programming available. Even if I don’t like the finished project, if I learn one technique then it was worth watching.

I’m the one who started this topic and then, to my surprise, discovered the next day that I will not be able to see the first episode because my public television station, which carried every episode last season, is not carrying it this season. To say I am disappointed is an understatement. Yes, I have registered by unhappiness with the station.

I know Tommy reads these posts so I will offer an additional comment/question or 2. After a show has aired, would it be possible to make the show available over the internet? I would gladly pay a reasonably fee for this service. I would even accept this if the show was not downloadable.

Another thought – - At $24.95, the cost of a single episode on DVD is steep. Could a meaningful discount be offered if one “subscribed” to the entire season? I suspect (but I do not know) that a package of all the season 2 episodes will be available at the end of the season. I’d rather get each week’s episode as it is available and I would gladly commit to buying an entire season. I’d accept (and actually prefer) the option of an over the internet download of each episode.

Hopefully, something can be worked out for those of us who do not have PBS access to this great show.

Can’t find it on my local Florida PBS station either.. And, they have not responded to my email. Maybe if I stopped sending the cable company a check they will call me and ask why

It’s a decent show but I wouldn’t mind if his “road trips” were left out. In a 1/2 hour show you really can’t spend 5-10 minutes on the inspiration of the piece. I didn’t like when Norm did it either.

It’s a woodworking show so i’ll tune in either way.
