Meet Tommy MacDonald. Video Interview.

If you have not heard of Tommy MacDonald you soon will. I grew up watching the New Yankee Workshop with Norm Abrams. I'm sure many of you know that show has ended after years on the air. Well to help fill that void Tommy will soon be starting a new woodworking show for PBS. It will be called "Rough Cut Woodworking with Tommy MacDonald"

I have followed Tommy for a while on his blog and his skill and personality should enable him to pull this off. It's tough to follow a legend like Norm but I think Tommy might just be the person to do it.

Watch this short interview with Tommy and keep your eyes open for the show starting in October. Good luck Tommy.

Another Lee Neiden Scroll Saw Pattern.

Here is another nice pattern from Lee Neiden. This cross has a few very small interior cuts. They will probably need a set of micro drill bits for the interior holes. Use your smallest blade to cut the letters. If you have too much trouble with the letters just cut them away and you will still have a nice cross.

Thanks Lee for all the help.
