The port city of San Francisco revels in art, diversity and food. Chinatown is a feast for the senses, and the city’s new Asian Art Museum a must-see. We get savvy on sourdough and tour notorious Alcatraz Island. A stroll through the Haight neighborhood harkens back to the “Summer of Love”, and the Italian cafes of North Beach serve up a dollop of hospitality with their espresso.

Back in his workshop, Tommy works with woodshop assistant Eli Cleveland to construct the table, demonstrating how to make mortise and tenon joints, spring joints for the table top, and bread board ends to prevent the wood from warping.
