We concentrate on a fall front desk, designed as a great work desk. Tommy is joined by series regular Steve Brown who breaks down the different parts to make it a much simpler process. Steve and Tommy work together to make it as compact as the original design to utilize space, while adding in their own contemporary design.

Kitchen Leaf Table with Tom McLaughlin (Episode #602H)

KQED Life: Mon, Dec 11, 2017 -- 1:30 PM

Tommy is joined by Master Woodworker Tom McLaughlin of Epic Woodworking and together they create a complicated Kitchen Leaf Table. With an Arts and Crafts inspired design, Tom and Tommy work together to make it more contemporary by adding a triangulated base, and a place to store the leaves under the book matched table top. Tom uses a high quality cherry wood for the entire project.

Computer Table with Al D'attanasio (Episode #610H)

KQED Life: Tue, Dec 5, 2017 -- 1:00 PM

Tommy is joined by series regular Al D'Attanasio to build a computer table. Al and Tommy are inspired by their own lives, hoping to have a place to hold all the essentials for a modern life. Though not as hip as some people may think, Al still needs a spot for his computer as well as drawers and a filing cabinet for his necessary paperwork.

KQED Life: Mon, Dec 4, 2017 -- 1:30 PM

We head to beautiful Santa Rosa, California to meet up with master woodworker David Marks as part of our Master Showcase Series.
