Classic Woodworking host Tom McLaughlin has been making and designing commissioned custom furniture for decades. His training launched forward when he entered a rare apprenticeship with master craftsman P.A. “Pug” Moore in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Tom remained close to Pug, even after branching out on his own, which included returning to his native New England roots where he’s been making furniture ever since. His credentials include: former Chairman of the New Hampshire Furniture Masters since 1998 and he’s been featured in articles in numerous newspapers, magazines, and woodworking journals. He has been teaching woodworking for two decades at his shop in New Hampshire.
