New Yankee Workshop Episode 106

In this episode, building an oak vanity, Norm used the following tools:

Throughout Season One, a warning chyron appeared on screen concerning the use of a blade guard when operating a table saw.

Items in bold represent the first appearance of that particular tool.

Oh, no. After warning the Chicken Littles about plunge cutting on the table saw back in Episode 102, I mentioned horrifying practices on the radial arm saw. Norm used the molding head on his. Perfectly fine with the appropriate safe guards, which Norm used, but RAS haters were undoubtedly apoplectic seeing it.

Norm used a plain board clamped to the Unifence as a sacrificial fence.

Norm introduced high pressure laminate.

Field trip was to Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, Massachusetts.

This episode was processed based on the full length original broadcast by PBS.
