‘Rough Cut’ to begin second season in October

Hot on the heels of a daytime Emmy Award nomination for its first season, "Rough Cut - Woodworking with Tommy Mac" returns to public television this fall with 13 new projects.

Premiering nationally on Saturday, Oct. 1 (check or local listings), the series continues to demonstrate how to craft a wide array of furniture, with projects suitable for all skill levels.

"I'm excited to kick off Season 2, which will feature some great new projects that will push the envelope of design," host Tommy MacDonald said in a statement. "And we'll not only bring master craftsmen from around the country into the shop, we'll also get creative inspiration from our Rough Cut road trips."

For the show's second season, projects will range from a Greene and Greene inspired dressing mirror and a laminated coat rack, to a sand-shaded clock and potting station.

MacDonald visits the Gamble House in Pasadena, Calif., the shop of studio artist David Ebner in Brookhaven, N.Y., and the new Art of the Americas wing at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
