New Yankee Workshop Episode 1801

In this episode, building a colonial style mantel, Norm used the following tools:

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

Norm spent quite a bit of time discussing materials preparation and jointer technique.

A minor point, but the SLP20 Norm used at his house was definitely a new one with the modern pearlescent paint, rather than the older gray color such as the one he uses in the shop.

I orignally identified the jigsaw as the newer 159x series jigsaw based on the sequence the episodes were aired. In the context of later episodes one can see that he has reverted to the 1584, which I now believe was the machine used in this episode.

The safety speech included video of an operation on the router table (wide board).

Field trip was to Norm’s home in a small town in Massachusetts.

Project filmed 13 and 14 April 2005.
