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 you can see the Tilt Top Table assembled
Here is Tom demonstrating the table in tilted position
Below are a couple of pictures and video of Tom demonstrating how he made some of the components that made up the table
Below is a couple of pictures I took while in the shop.
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
