The latest issue of Fine Wood Working came in the mail today and was eagerly awaiting my return home. After scarfing down supper I was skimming through it and came across an ad towards the back. It was for Rough Cut Woodworking with a new host Tom Mclaughlin from New Hampshire. I knew Tommy MacDonald had left the show after the last season was wrapped and that he had washed his hands of PBS and was moving in some new direction. I have met both these craftsmen and they are both really nice guys. Some of my favorite episodes of RC were the ones when Tom Mclaughlin was a guest. Hopefully the two are still on good terms personally. It seems kind of cheap on WGBH's part to simply recast the host of the show. Why couldn't they come up with a new show title? That said I will tune in this spring when the new episodes air to see what direction the show goes in. Tom was an instructor at both of the Weekend With Wood events I attended and he did an excellent job on his seminars. He offered some great advice to me on a project that I was working on at the time and was a big help.
