New Yankee Workshop Episode 1703

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

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

A little turning, a little basic frame construction, the rest was all about upholstering.

A rare no-Unisaw episode.

A button needle was used, but I'm not going to chronicle it separately as it's an upholstery specific tool, not the woodworking tools we've been following.

In the safety speech, Norm said, “before we start woodworking…” instead of the usual, “before using any power tools…”

The safety speech included video of an operation on the router table with a slip of the fingers.

Field trip to Furniture Trade Show, High Point, North Carolina.

Project filmed 5, 6 May 2004.

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