Episode Guide »
A Shaker-inspired Step Stool is Tommy's project on this episode of Rough Cut. This simple piece serves as the perfect introduction to woodworking, and throughout the episode Tommy explores the technique of making dovetails. For inspiration, he travels to Rollingsford, New Hampshire, and meets up with Allan Breed of the Breed School of Fine Woodworking. There, Allan shows Tommy his unique way of cutting dovetails, which includes holding the saw upside down. Upon returning to his shop, Tommy works with local woodworker Al D'Attanasio to explain the important and varied techniques of making dovetails.
