Posts about New Yankee Workshop episodes being shown online have popped up recently, followed by discussion of Norm and his tools. FYI folks, I just stumbled upon this site “normstools” http://www.normstools.com/index.shtml which is everything Norm and NYW. The fellow refers to himself as the “Master Woodbutcher”, lol. I thought that was me. Anyway, he lists every single episode of the show by number and the numbers coincide with the episodes richgreer and davidroberts mentioned on their posts. He also lists every tool used on each specific episode with a link on that specific tool. The site also has a layout drawing of Norm’s shop showing where each tool is located. And I thought I liked Norm! Lastly, I just watched on You Tube, Norm receiving the EyeSmart Distinguished Service Award from the American Academy of Ophthalmology for his promotion of eye safety over the years. With a state representative present, doctors, etc., Norm (no stranger to cameras) held his own and made a nice little acceptance speech. “Award” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqdraj9wvto

Thanks for the link. I have searched for his episodes many times and not found much that intersted me until last night. It seems that recently a lot has been uploaded and I was up late last night watching him in action. I will be building new kitchen cabinets for my house pretty soon and all the episodes for his most recent kitchen build was there for the viewing.

hobie, what site were you on such that you could choose which episode to watch? I thought we were limited to the current episode they were running, for example episode 108 on the bookcase.

Lenny, go to youtube and the particular episodes I was looking for were his most recent kitchen remodel. Each of these episodes are broken up into 3 parts each. All I did was search for “new yankee workshop” and you will find those as well as many others. Hope this helps

Thanks Hobie. I happened to DVR the series on the kitchen so I am good there. I taped the deluxe router table one with a VCR back in 2003 but can’t seem to locate it. I probably taped over it by mistake. I want to look that one up. Thanks again.
