Watch It Again—New Yankee Workshop
Follow along while Norm makes a drop-leaf table and a butcher block
Several more episodes of New Yankee Workshop are now available, and the bonus for Insiders is that the plans will be available for free. Eventually all 21 seasons (more than 200 episodes) of this woodworking show featuring master carpenter Norm Abram will be online.
For now, have a look while Norm makes a drop-leaf table, an oak bathroom vanity, a corner cupboard, a plant stand, a redwood arbor, and a butcher block. Norm himself is happy to see the episodes available in good-quality digitized video—and the plans available as PDFs. "I think the continuing appeal of the show is that it features classic techniques, such as mortise-and-tenon, and useful projects," says Norm. "The 'New' in the name was always meant to describe the finishes, glues, tools, and newer things like that, but the real attraction is the beautiful objects inspired by the past."
