Rough Cut - Woodworking With Tommy Mac

Bread Box

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Who doesn't want a beautiful natural bread box for their kitchen, especially if it features a fabulous tambour door? The tambour door has been around for hundreds of years, and though it looks like it would be hard to construct, it is made of just a few slats of wood stuck onto a canvas. In this episode, Tommy demonstrates the techniques for constructing the bread box and building the tambour door. He also tours the Peabody Essex Museum with curator Dean Lahikainen, who shows off their wonderful collection of John and Thomas Seymour pieces of early American furniture. Finally, Tommy is paid an in-studio visit by fellow North Bennet Street School alumnus Eli Cleveland.
