WGBH Boston will begin airing Season 8 of the Emmy-nominated public television series Rough Cut in April, with a new host, professional woodworker and teacher Tom McLaughlin, and a name change reflecting a new partner, Rough Cut with Fine Woodworking.
Woodcraft, an industry leader in woodworking
education, will continue as a sponsor for the 2018 season. “Woodcraft welcomes Tom McLaughlin, a highly acclaimed woodworker
and instructor who has appeared as a guest in several previous episodes, and
anticipates the show will continue to provide our customers with excellent
instruction in woodworking,” Woodcraft president Jody Garrett said.
Tom McLaughlin has been making and
designing commissioned custom furniture since 1990. After years of higher
education in his twenties, he decided at 29 to pursue his love for fine
furnituremaking full-time. His training launched forward when he entered a rare
apprenticeship with master craftsman P.A. “Pug” Moore in Rocky Mount, North
Carolina. McLaughlin remained close to Moore, even after branching out on his
own, which included returning to his native New England roots where he’s been
making furniture ever since.
McLaughlin is a member and former chairman of the New Hampshire Furniture Masters since 1998 and has written articles for numerous newspapers, magazines, and woodworking journals. Learn more about McLaughlin at www.EpicWoodworking.com.
