New Yankee Workshop Episode 2105

In this episode (originally aired in 1997), building a dough box, Norm used the following tools:

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

This is hilarious. Every time I've watched this (HGTV version), I've been struck at the end as he's describing the finished project, by the mention of a mouse hole. It's been nagging me for years, as I actually remembered something about a mouse hole from the original. Well, seeing the PBS version I'm vindicated. There it was, part of a 30 second clip that HGTV snipped to sell more commercials.

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

He also gave quite a demonstration of both detritus removal from salvaged lumber and the monster 5 HP dust collector in the back alcove.

The safety speech included video of a crosscut operation on the radial arm saw—oblique view.

Norm added hearing protection to his safety advisory.

Field trip was to the home of Keith & Julie Dimond, Savannah, Georgia.

New material for this project filmed on 16 July 2008.

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