The big news in the woodworking and diy world today was that Norm Abram, long-time host of This Old House and New Yankee Workshop, will cease production of New Yankee workshop but continue his work as the master carpenter on This Old House.
Apparently the New Yankee Workshop website will remain online which is a positive considering the wealth of knowledge in lessons and plans that are available.
Even if you don’t harbor a secret love for Norm this is a blow for those who valued his straightforward and honest instruction and precision techniques. We recently posted this video about his favorite tools which was insightful.
But you can still catch him on This Old House and we can always carve his likeness in a pumpkin for Halloween each year.
