Insider Giveaway: Visit the New Yankee Workshop!
Fifteen lucky winners will tour the shop and have lunch with Norm and Russ
Viewers of The New Yankee Workshop over the years have marveled not only at the skill of TOH master carpenter Norm Abram but also at the incredible workshop outfitted with tools and machines that most home woodworkers could only dream about.
For 20 years, Norm shared his fine-woodworking techniques during episodes of The New Yankee Workshop, building everything from a Shaker-style red pine medicine cabinet (the very first project, Season 1, Episode 1, in January 1989) to library ladders, garden swings, trestle tables, and more. Although the show has been off the air since 2009, the workshop is still intact—and a few lucky Insiders will have the chance to see it in person.
Even better, they will get to meet the master craftsman and the mastermind: Norm Abram and the show’s creator, Russ Morash, who also created This Old House, Ask This Old House, and The Victory Garden. Norm and Russ will host a lunch, a Q&A, and a tour of the workshop on Saturday, May 4. For a chance to participate in this rare event, visit the entry page on the Insider website; entries will be accepted until April 21. See the official rules for additional details.
