For Rough Cut's second season, Tommy will craft projects ranging from a Greene and Greene inspired Dressing Mirror and a Laminated Coat Rack, to a Sand-Shaded Clock and Potting Station, using both power and hand tools (his favorite). Viewers will see a mix of woodworking techniques and processes, including finger joints, cloud lifts, turning, and carving, along with "T-Mac tips." Tommy's expanded travel itinerary includes California, where he gains design inspiration from the Arts and Crafts work of architects Charles and Henry Greene at the Gamble House in Pasadena.
