New Yankee Workshop Episode 1901

In this episode, building a Giltwood Mirror, Norm used the following tools:

The first half of the program consisted of the field trip and approximately six minutes of actual woodworking to build the frame—the second half was devoted to gilding the frame. I won't pursue the gilding tools as this site is focused on woodworking. An internet search on gilding will yield all the information one could want on the subject.

The K-bodies were in evidence and clearly needed, however they weren't actually seen in use.

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

Field trip was to Gary Sullivan of Sharon, Massachusetts. Gary is part of the local PBS community near Boston and appears on Antiques Roadshow.

Project filmed 28, 29, 30 March 2006.

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