Road-trip to Epic Woodworking & Tom Mclaughlin

This weekend  I took a little road trip out to visit Tom McLaughlin at Epic Woodworking in Canterbury, NH.

Epic Woodworking has both On site Classes & Online Classes whether you are a beginner or a more experienced woodworker Epic Woodworking has a course for you, that Tom teaches.

The whole reason for my trip was to have a class with Tom McLaughlin as our host and the topic of discussion was a very informal visit to his shop to talk about how he made The Tilt Top Table that was featured on his TV show “Rough Cut with Fine Woodworking”

 

 Here is the  shop of Tom McLaughlin of Epic Woodworking , what a beautiful shop inside and out.

I would just like to Thank Tom for a wonderful day and I learnt so much just being in his shop with him showing you all the techniques that you can use in  any project, he is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I think some of his best traits is that he is extremely approachable and no question is too dumb.

 

SPECIAL UNEXPECTED SURPRISE

What was a little funny was that Tom showed us the project that he made for the episode of Rough Cut & Fine Woodworking that was airing on the day that we were in his shop, the project was a Contemporary Table lamp that he made with special guest Chris Becksvoort if you want to look at the show click here

 The lamp is beutiful and its made with pieces of veneer that acts as the shade and the body is made up of a few pieces of wood with half-lap joinery.
