When you think of woodworkers on TV, Norm Abram’s iconic image often comes to mind first. From his signature plaid shirts to the well-worn tool belt around his waist, Norm is a woodworking legend.
The site for the New Yankee Workshop offers the entire collection of projects. From the medicine chest – the first plan built on the show back in 1988 – through the kitchen cabinet opus which aired last season, you can buy measured drawings and videos to accompany them.
The site also goes into greater detail, showcasing Norm-inspired projects built by other woodworkers, a question and answer section called shop notes and virtual tours of the famous workshop.
While Norm may not need the exposure, a visit to the New Yankee site can give you a little more background on this famous show.
