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

Format: Paperback
'Rough Cut - Woodworking with Tommy Mac' is a wonderfully illustrated book with 12 interesting designs for handmade furniture. There are great woodworking techniques all laid out step by step. It also has some interesting historical facts about furniture and furniture making. This book is for the more advanced woodworker with a workshop full of specialist tools; the book helpfully lists the tools required for each project. For many people the book would be worth buying just for its interest, even if they weren't able or planning to make the projects. I have given it 4*; it would have been 5* if the projects were easier for the average user.

Great book for any woodworker!
I'm using it along with his PBS show to make a Shaker step stool to get started.
