This just in… Fine Woodworking just received word that the New Yankee Workshop is ending after 21 seasons on PBS according to Patrick Ramirez, a spokesperson for WGBH Boston. Woodworking TV 2.0If you thought woodworking TV died with the retirement of the New Yankee Workshop, think again. But, if this news is getting you down, it’s not too late to see this woodworking icon up close and personal in just a few days. And, New Yankee plan fans can continue to buy projects plans at the New Yankee Web site as well as order DVDs, find Q&As, etc. So, now audience, back to you… what are your thoughts on the New Yankee's retirement?
If the show were presented as a sustained, continuous webinar, it would be possible to reinvent "the show" (I'd surmise that it would be at least a complete reboot of the show and more likely a relaunch) with far lower levels of financial underwriting than would be necessary for television distribution.
PBS you need to continue this as there are a lot of us out there that watch Norm and enjoy this hobby. We can only hope for a Brett Favre like return(s) or maybe pbs can show the series from the first to the last episode. 01191943 writes: Always looked forward to seeing Norm in that dream workshop, but I suppose this is the result of the suits on the TV networks that think it is time for young blood to reach their intended audience, BIG mistake, I would far rather watch Norm who has the years of experience and knowledge that comes with working with wood. Rvette writes: Norm, I join everyone else in saying how sorry I am that your show cannot continue.
I have gone to the Woodworking Show every year for the past 4 years, and will probably go again this year.
There are two things you can expect to find at the Woodworking Show: things to buy, and skills to learn. If you plan on ordering $100+ in Woodpeckers tools at one of these shows, print out this coupon to save $10.
Right now I have a bit too much to do to leave just yet, and have other plans Saturday and Sunday that will keep me away from the show. Woodpeckers One Time Tool: 45-90 Stainless Steel Triangles for Marking Angles Time For a Bigger Drill Press - Recommendations? The travelling Woodworking Show landed by my neck of the woods this past weekend, and so I stopped by to check it out.
Although it has been a full year since I last talked about Woodpeckers tools, they’re still one of my favorite woodworking tool brands. When I was done walking through the rows, with loudspeakers and microphone headset-wearing salesmen and women on opposite sides, I bought a couple of more things. I bought a couple of packs of Olson scroll saw blades at one bazaar-like booth, and several acrylic pen blanks from the Craft Supplies USA setup. Aaron Radelow copied the design for this stylized lion from a painting at the Getty Museum.


Carl Stammerjohn’s Hall Table was the best in its category (contemporary furniture) in my humble opinion, but the state judge put it second. The largest woodworking guild or club that I know of is the San Diego Fine Woodworkers Association, and it probably isn’t surprising that they have the biggest show. What is a little different is that their big yearly show happens at the huge San Diego County Fair.
Every year, tireless volunteers from the SDFWA, led by Bob Stevenson, return to the exhibition buildings at the Del Mar Fairgrounds to refurbish and set up the pedestals, display cases, and exhibition workshops they provide each year for the Design in Wood show.
For that past 10 years or so, Fine Woodworking has presented the Best in Show award (we earn that honor by ponying up the largest award: $1,000), and this is my third time doing the judging.
In a tough economy, I expected a few less pieces this year, but I think the opposite happened. Since the state judges tie my hands a bit, I always like to blog about the pieces that I think the Fine Woodworking readers would like best, and then throw in a few of my own favorites.
Last Updated 2011 04 22 literally scores of professional mark woodworking and metalworking tools and The Workshop is located inwards capital of Ireland Ohio type A suburb 15 miles northwestern of Columbus. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to visit angstrom unit woodworking stores columbus ohio woodwork salt away that I had heard great things. Fine Woodworking featured host Norm Abram on the cover twice, once in 2008 when the series celebrated its 20th anniversary. FW published a profile on Abram in 1993 (FWW #99) and more recently Abram wrote an article about crafting your dream kitchen in 2008 (FWW #196).
I have done woodwork since I was a child and enjoyed Norm and the New Yankee Workshop weekly show. I can’t speak for any other shows, but I can assure you that, as of today, they are NOT going to be holding a show in Houston at the location listed on their web site.
Tickets are not available at the Houston facility and they told me that the show won’t be coming there this year. Going in I knew more or less what to expect, but I really didn’t enjoy myself as much this year as in past years. Looking back at older posts, I am reminded that the Woodpeckers booth was a highlight of the 2010 show as well.
This year's show also attracted an array of musical instruments, plus a huge kayak, and even a spiral staircase for a chihuahua.
The nice thing about the boulle method is that it leaves a tiny gap between pieces, and the black filler Radelow used makes the whole thing look like an exquisite pen-and-ink drawing. I was tempted to pick this hollow vessel, made from stunning box elder by Mike Jackofsky, as Best in Show.
So folks gnawing on a giant turkey leg, their ears still buzzing from a concert by an American Idol star, will wander into the Fine Arts Exhibit Halls to have their minds calmed and expanded a bit, until they get bored and head back out to ride the Nauseator.


Check in every weekday for news, information, projects, and answers to questions from Fine Woodworking readers everywhere. Forest Werks Supply is a retail woodwork store deep-seated firm in the great city of Columbus Ohio.
In Norm Stories, a former editor at Fine Woodworking, recounts how Abram got him into woodworking after an appearance at Good Morning America. Norm knew what to do,how to do it, and when to do it.Saturday mornings are not the same without NYW! This could conceivably change, but I certainly would not buy tickets in advance for the Houston show. It’s always a pleasure to chat with Kathy about Woodpeckers tools, so make it a point to do so if you visit your regional show. They also have a coupon on their webpage that you can print out and bring to the Woodworking Show for $10 off your $100+ purchase. I would have given it first place in art furniture, and a spot in my house if I could afford it.
We have to pick from the first-place winners in the 20 or so categories, and those awards are made by state-appointed judges. What stood out this year for me this year were the non-furniture items: sculpture, turnings, bird carvings, huge models ships, etc. 2010 01 woodworking finishes 01 From my friend Jim Heavey and got woodworking hardware hinges to dig around at all the tools. Patronize for Woodworking Tools Plans Finishing and Hardware online at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware. Ohio Wood Werks Supply is axerophthol retail carpentry store planted unwaveringly in the not bad metropolis of Christopher Columbus Ohio.
I rarely learn anything of value from this old house but the techniques I have learned from Yankee are numerous and invaluable. So often I have been confronted with a woodworking dilemma in my woodworking hobby that you have solved for me. I would also like to know who took the show off so we could lobby for a return--or at least re-run the shows again.
