Wooden Bowls | New Yankee Workshop
On this episode of New Yankee Workshop
Friday Harbor, Washington -- about as far north and west as you can get in the continental United States -- is home to Walt Koertje, an artisan whose specialty is making glorious wooden bowls.
Norm pays a visit to Walt, sees his industrial-strength lathe, and is determined to return to The New Yankee Workshop and try one himself.
Back home, Norm has to find a piece of wood suitable for his own bowl. He pays a visit to Matt Foti, a local arboriculturist, who supplies him with the walnut, maple and ash woods to turn three beautiful bowls.
