On this Rough Cut episode, Tommy tackles the difficult technique of off-set turning on a lathe when he makes the unique Barley Twist Lamp. The lamp is made out of beautiful mahogany and topped off with a specially made glass top designed and created just for this project. For the Road Trip, Tommy visits his good friend, glassblower, Niels Cosman at his Rhode Island School of Design studio. Niels will make a special appearance back at the Rough Cut shop when he personally delivers the finished lampshade to Tommy.
