Rough Cut - Woodworking with Tommy Mac
Tommy is the first to say, finishes are an art unto themselves. That's why he dedicated an entire episode to this topic featuring two very talented finishers, Christine Thomson, a period finisher from Salem, Massachusetts, and Mark Libby, a local finisher who has worked with Tommy for years. In this episode, Tommy provides detailed project instruction for work requiring a finishing technique. He visits Christine's shop to see some of her techniques, and later, Mark Libby swings by Tommy's shop. [26 minutes]
