Dinner with Tommy Mac

sponsored by Pony Tools

Maybe you had never heard of Thomas MacDonald before he began hosting Rough Cut—Woodworking with Tommy Mac on PBS in 2009. These days he ranks as one of the best-known names in woodworking. But Tommy's road has been anything but a cruise in the fast lane. In fact, you could easily call him an overnight sensation years in the making.

In this dinner presentation, Tommy Mac tells how he went from a blue-collar upbringing to voc/tech school dropout to hosting his own TV show. He'll share the story of his transformation, his passion for all things woodworking, and answer your questions.

Tickets to dinner with Tommy Mac are optional ($60) and can be purchased at the time of your "Weekend With WOOD" registration. You may purchase an additional ticket for a non-attendee, such as a spouse, by calling 888-636-4478.
