Tommy Mac was also entertaining the attendees with his woodworking expertise and information on his Rough Cut PBS show. Tommy is teaching how to make a lazy susan inlay by measuring the size of the inlay, then planing, cutting, and drilling  (pictured below). Tune in for the finished product as Tommy makes this inlay design for a 10 year old woodworking gal.

Mark is hosting a grand re-opening celebration, Friday October 8th and Saturday, October 9th. Come out and see this beautiful 20,000 square foot facility. You’ve got to see this in person, you will not believe your eyes! Stay tuned for a full story on this new state of the art, Woodcraft store.

Tommy is pictured with Dave Bonnette who made the trip from West Virginia with his wife. You might recognize him, as he is part of our “Turning Tuedays” group in Lubeck, WV.

Come back for  a lot more at the WIA show including a couple of special stories on a 10  year old woodworker with Tommy Mac and a 12 year old woodworker with Rob Cosman.
