New Yankee Workshop Episode 2013

In this episode, building a Queen Anne tap table, Norm used the following tools:

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

Odd—in the previous episode, Norm sort of did an out of sequence segment, in which he demonstrated putting finish on some parts which needed it before commencing upholstery, but also before he had finished assembling the piece. Then he went back to the construction. In this episode, there was a constant shifting back and forth between constructing the second version of the table and putting the finish on the prototype. The finish was a complex, multi-stage formula intended to give the appearance of a distressed finish.

The framing square, height gauge, P-C 333 sander, awl, center finder, and #92 rabbet plane were all visible but were not demonstrated in this episode.

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

Field trip was to NorthEast Antiques in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Project filmed 13, 15 November 2007.

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