  1. oak blanket chest

    This blanket chest was a wedding gift for a dear friend of my wife's. It is not made out of oak and stained golden oak by minwax. The panels are plywood to save time and money. This project was done by a plan from the New Yankee Workshop.
  2. Norms Chair Build (NYWS)

    I recently built this chair from the plans from Norms NYWS. It's built with rough cut Cypress. I picked up the lumber in the rainy season in southern florida and had to wait a while for it to dry a little but all in all I'm very happy with the way the build went. I had expected this chair to be...
  3. Norm Abrams Pencil Post Bed

    Completed July 1991. Watch this video to view my master bedroom which seven pieces of furniture that I've built over the years. This bed was a project in one of Norm Abram's books. Being the ever-precise woodworker, I built it tight to my previous box spring. When I upgraded to a...
  4. Norm Abrams Five-Drawer Dresser

    Completed 1989. This cherry dresser is a Norm Abram's design and is detailed in one of his books. I departed from the plan by dovetailing the base instead of mitering it. My late wife got very tired of wrestling with the drawers and insisted that I fix them. 18 years after completing the...
  5. blanket chest

    This is a new yankee project that I made about two years ago for my wife to accompany the hutch in our dining room. It is made of pine and finished with polyurethane. The panels are edge glued solid wood and there is tongue and groove cedar boards in the bottom. The lid is biscuit jointed...
  6. Adirondack chairs

    I'm new to this site and I wanted to post a project I completed recently that has got me interested in doing more woodworking. I've built many "rough" woodworking projects over the years - a deck, a farm stand, a counter for a farm stand, the counters and shelves in my workshop, etc., but I...
  7. Hand Tools
    Can someone explain a question I've been wondering about for a while. Once you get a surface perfectly flat with a #7 jointer plane, won't a #4 smoothing plane cause small ripples, as it's surface is quite a bit shorter. It always struck me that this is a step backwards. And why does a #4...
  8. Jigs & Fixtures
    So I've been looking for a good mortising jig for building six dining chairs. Each chair has about 20 mortises and I want to finish them before I'm 100 years old (I am 42), so I needed something fast and accurate. I found the Mortise Pal online, but I am apparently a few years too late because...

  11. Hand Tools
    Just got sucked into the world of hand planes, never thought it would happen but it happened and there's no turning back. I got a MF 9 in pretty good condition but I want to make it look spiffy again. I know some people don't care about making planes spiffy again, but I do. This is the lever...
  12. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Don't say you've never watched him and don't say you've never picked up a trick or jig idea- because you know you have! Just cruised the NYW site for the starting date of the new PBS season and guess what- Season 21 is all reruns! Norm will have new introductions to previously aired projects...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi - I'm still looking for a good cabinet saw! I've searched the wide internet via Google, but this saw has pretty much no commentary going for it ! (Or against it, for that matter.) Delta 36-900 Unisaw Limited Edition Norm Abrams arbor saw I understand from what I have read is that they were...
