In this episode:
After looking through the offerings of a country store, Norm finds the inspiration to build a small lock-and-key-style writing desk, which was popular 200 hundred years ago. Any viewer who has ever struggled with box joints or dovetails won’t want to miss this program. These fine woodworking details are what give this simple piece its elegant character. Norm crafts two versions of this piece — one out of antique chestnut and one out of cherry — to ensure that viewers at home will be able to master these woodworking techniques.
