A production of  

The WGBH-produced series invites viewers into the workshop of Boston native and fine furniture maker Tommy MacDonald, a graduate of the famed Boston-based North Bennet Street School.

Rough Cut: Woodworking with Tommy Mac: Season 5

Saturdays at 4:30pm on WGBH 2

Within each half-hour episode, Tommy goes over the step-by-step process of building the project, while offering special “T-Mac tips” on technique. Joining Tommy in his shop are series favorites – Eli Cleveland, North Bennet Street School graduate, Boston-based woodworker Al D’Attanasio, and Steve Brown of the North Bennet Street School.

Follow Tommy as he travels to historical landmarks to gain design inspiration, then returns to his workshop to demonstrate the steps and techniques it takes to create comprehensive woodworking projects. Celebrity chef Paul Wahlberg of Wahlburgers fame (and brother to Mark and Donnie Wahlberg) visits Tommy in the shop this year. 

As the season continues, Tommy will build everyday pieces for indoors and out – from beds and wardrobes to tables and chairs. And for inspiration, he’ll head to the Windy City, the birthplace of American Arts and Crafts where he'll visit the Art Institute of Chicago and the home and studio of Frank Lloyd Wright.
