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. Built of walnut and European beech my roubo style workbench is my most prized woodworking tool in the shop. Michael J Hanley is the proprietor of Autumn Woods Studio and has pursued fine woodworking over the course of 35 years.

With a cup of coffee in hand, I am greeted each morning from the front door with this view of my studio and the rather cheery 60 foot commute. Before boxes were unpacked we dug in immediately, transforming the space with R-28 insulation, some carefully re-routed electrical - adding 220v power for the table saw and heater, new drywall with a fresh coat of "studio white" paint and a wet-sink for brush clean-up.
In the center of the space is a customized 2-vice workbench built by friend Jonathan Kinsey with a storage drawer unit that can slide from side to side as I requested knee-space while sitting and drawing. The shop-vac can quickly plug into the orbital sander or support the dust collection of the miter saw with a vacuum tube attached to the factory mounted nozzle at the rear. Shown here is "Box #6" in Marblewood, East Indian and Bolivian Rosewoods, Iroko, Jatoba and Cocobolo. Let’s discuss safety tips for woodworking from home If you are about to begin doing woodworking projects from home, then you should be aware of some important safety tips before starting. You should always Enjoy your wood working hobby but make sure that you are following some safety guidelines. It is recommended that you get a firm understanding of woodworking before attempting it on your own.
One of the most important rules in woodworking is to ensure that you are wearing the right safety equipment Hearing protection is important when you are subject to very noisy electric tools such as sanders and routers. When working with wood you need to feel comfortable, not overheated and protected from a risk of injury from the woodworking environment. When working with woodworking tools particularly tools with sharp blades ensure that the blades are kept sharp. Another safety tip is to make sure that the wood or metal that you are working with does not have any nails or screws that are going to be caught on saw blades.  Spinning saw blades  are able to catch screws or nails and it can damage both the item that you are working with but also the cutting head of the tool. When blades or parts such as power drill bits need changing then you must always disconnect any electricity supply connected to it. You can sharpen your woodworking skills with helpful tips and techniques from the editors of Woodsmith and ShopNotes magazines. If you’d like even more great ideas for getting more from your router, go to: Router Tables at PlansNow.
It’s made from two pieces of aluminum angle joined together by a small wood block (see end view below right).
When gluing and clamping small parts together, it’s always a challenge to align large clamps to hold them in place as the glue dries. Place a T-nut in each hole at the back edge of the stop block, slide a threaded rod through the holes in both of the blocks, and then screw them into the T-nuts, like you see in the side view below right.


To use the clamp, loosen the wing nuts and place the parts to be clamped between the blocks.
So, to store these and other small items, I built a pull-out storage case, like you see in the photo at right.
While I was vacationing near my hometown in Ohio in August, I received a phone call from a long-time family friend, Dave Corwin, from Delaware, Ohio. Dave also commented that he really thought the simple resaw pivot block for the band saw was a great idea. Every issue of ShopNotes is packed full of projects, informative articles, and tips to make your shop time more enjoyable. It won’t take a lot of time, effort, or material to improve your shop with these handy plywood projects. Plus, in Router Workshop, we’ll show you our Top 10 Hand-Held Router Accessories that will help you get more out of your hand-held router.
And, as always, you’ll find lots of other informative pages inside this issue of ShopNotes. Neither Don nor Paul’s name is as familiar perhaps as Norm Abram, but to me their magazines were groundbreaking.
Paul Roman, and his wife Jan, started Fine Woodworking in 1975 and it eventually expanded into a publishing empire that includes magazines for woodworking, home building, cooking, and gardening.
Filed under Fine Woodworking, ShopNotes Magazine, Woodnet Forum, Woodsmith, Workbench Magazine. 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.
He has designed and built timberframed homes and interiors, custom furniture and accents.  His work features hardwoods with exotic color and grain patterns, unusually wide boards, quarter sawing and bookmatching for affect. The lay-out consists of the sink, wall cabinets and main power tools in the rear and three layout tables and a workbench in the center and in front of the glass doors. The main power tools are all tied together on the back walls to a 4" dust collector in the corner. Not thinking about safety when constructing with wood and tools can result in chances of injury. A great resource to learn woodworking from home can be found at this woodworking review site. Sharp tools complete the task quicker and more safely as you do not have to work as hard to achieve the result that you are looking for. Unplug the appliance first don’t just trip a switch as this could malfunction and cause an electric shock when touching the switch.  When electricity is switched off then you can change the part of the power tool that you need to. So it’s important that all of my power tools be portable and take up as little space as possible. Then, after removing the top of an adjustable clamping table, I mounted the router table to the clamping table stand, as shown in the left photo above. Best of all, I can remove the router and quickly fold the table up to store it against the wall whenever it’s not in use (right photo). It’s hard to get the drill bit centered and keep the dowel from turning as the hole is drilled.
Then slip the clamping jig over the dowel and squeeze the kerf together with a small clamp. A slotted hole at each end accepts a flange bolt from the table so you can quickly mount and adjust the fence to meet almost any drilling challenge.
Put the pieces together by slipping the threaded rod through the adjusting block and adding washers and locknuts, like you see in the drawing and detail below.
I usually measure several times just to make sure I get it right.Then I made the simple drawer gauge shown in the photo below. They are drilled to hold flange bolts and two sections of threaded rod, as the illustration shows below. Position the front of the clamping block to extend slightly beyond the edge of the base so you can turn the knobs and secure the stop block in place.
The case is large enough to hold a couple of small plastic storage cabinets with lots of drawers (the kind you find at hardware stores and home centers). A handle attached to the side lets me simply pull it out to get to the items and then push it back out of the way again. He said he really enjoyed the article and was especially tickled and surprised when I told him I wrote it.


This easy-to-build outfeed support gives you an extra hand when you need it — and stores easily when you don’t. Each has probably influenced more people to get into the shop and actually build something than just about anyone else on Garrett’s list.
Woodsmith, published by August Home Publishing (they also put out ShopNotes, Workbench, Garden Gate, and Cuisine at home), is unique in that it doesn’t just show you a pretty project, it helps you build the project with detailed step-by-step instructions and clear, concise drawings and photos. Paul’s goal was to have a woodworking magazine that not only informed, but also inspired its readers. And this is not a knock on Norm, but I’d rather read about woodworking and then go do it myself, than watch it being done on TV anyday.
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! Simply as a result of the fact When you explore as well as perform the actual woodoperating, you might possibly no less than save your valuable funds if you tend not to need to spfinish the genuine father any longer for any standard task.
The set contains plans and even blueprints for almost all woodworks that one might need for home, farm, or office.
The quality with the information found in Woodworking Bench (Woodworking Bench : Woodworking Risk Management Proper Method To Avoid Any Injury) is well above anything you will find now available. Safety glasses should be worn when you begin to work with wood tools due to splinters of wood flying off and potential risk of penetrating the eye. Try not to have any clothing that could become loose and entangled in a tool such as a power blade such as loose items such as handkerchiefs and scarves.  Protect your body as much as possible and avoid having skin exposed.
Make certain that before cutting through your item that you do check it for hidden metal parts.
It is recommended that you regularly check wires and cables for any splits that could be a safety issue.
So I built the simple drill press table and fence with a replaceable insert you see in the photo above.
Two bottom-mounted T-tracks attach the table to the drill press, as you can see in detail ‘b’ and the photo at right.
So I built the micro-adjuster you see in the photo above using spare parts I had around the shop.
Then you can cut a dado at the bottom of the fence to hold the piece of L-shaped aluminum in place.
This allows the aluminum strip attached to the fence to be moved forward and backward one thread at a time when you make fine fence adjustments.
Now, I don’t have to worry about the “numbers.” The gauge always shows me the exact distance. Next, slide the four flange bolts in the T-track, slip the blocks over the bolts and add the washers and wing nuts. Finally, snug up the star knobs and tighten the wing nuts to lock the clamping block in place. When I married, our first home was across the street from Dave’s, so we became friends as well as neighbors.
Get into the habit of putting safety glasses on and not taking them off until leaving the woodwork area.
Alongside this any jewellery that could also be caught in any wood machinery such as rings, bracelets and necklaces. Plans provide for the very structure on how woodworks are laid down clearly and concisely; hence there is nothing else to search for.
There were three of us woodworkers on the block, so we could often be found in each other’s shop on any given day sipping a cup of coffee and telling a story or two.
I rarely learn anything of value from this old house but the techniques I have learned from Yankee are numerous and invaluable. Woodwork plans with Teds are most conveniently carried on because of the many helpful freebies provided.
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.
