Called “one of the best” by The Boston Globe. A rising star, Tommy Mac has also been hailed as “the van Gogh of woodworking” by The Woodshop News. As he walks you through these 12 projects, he teaches key skills and shares his expertise and observations. Take advantage of his keen insights and helpful tips to improve your own work.

Sneak a peek behind the scenes. You’ll learn the back story of why these projects made the show, including: How a unique piece of artisan wood became a trestle table.

About the Author:

Renowned woodworker THOMAS J. MacDONALD graduated from the North Bennet Street School in Boston's North End in 2002. Since then, he's been featured in "Forbes "Magazine, "Fine Woodworking," and "The Boston Globe." He's been honored to have his furniture displayed at the Massachusetts Historical Society, The Pendleton House at RISD's Museum of Art and the Concord Museum. He lives in Canton, Massachusetts.
LAURIE DONNELLY is the Executive Producer in charge of WGBH-TV Lifestyle Programming and is the Executive Producer/Director of Rough Cut. Laurie lives right outside of Boston.

Review:

In this easy-to-use, straightforward guidebook, master carpenter MacDonald energetically builds on the success of his popular PBS television show by passionately sharing the techniques required to build twelve projects. Rather than urging people to make the perfect bookcase or footstool or breadbox, he counsels that it's okay to make mistakes and that woodworkers, whether accomplished or aspiring, don't need to feel the burden of getting it "just right" on any single project. Each chapter is chock full of illustrations and detailed diagrams of the individual pieces that compose the project; a thorough materials list and list of power and hand tools required for the project; detailed and numbered step-by-step instructions for the project; sidebars on safety and T-Mac tips on technique; and a sidebar on a road trip on which MacDonald finds the inspiration for the project. Each chapter focuses on a particular technique that can be mastered for other projects. When you make a keepsake box, for example, you're also learning how to reinforce miter joints with splines. MacDonald's a loving evangelist for his craft, and both his television show and this book are likely to win many converts. (Nov.) --Publishers Weekly
