I am afraid it will make little difference to me. They stopped broadcasting Norm here a few years ago. and even the repeats of repeats stopped.I really liked watching him but wish we had the same chance as you guys to see more of his stuff.I heard he was asking Sky for too much money and they said no thanks .Alistair

This is a sad day indeed. Norm is, and has always been my inspiration in woodworking. Having never been formally taught this hobby, most of my limited skill and abilities, let alone my love of tools of all kinds, have all come from watching this master at work.

I wish him good times, long life, and hope that he knows how much he is appreciated, by so many people.

Thanks Norm.

That is sad. Norm was really my first exposure to this stuff when I was about 7 or so, and since then I've picked a mountain of information from his show.
Only took me another 20 years to start actually doing it :)

We'll miss you Norm

That is a bummer. But to tell the truth I rather suspected something like this would happen since they quit filming new episodes. Norm certainly has been an inspiration to countless numbers of us who enjoy woodworking.

An enormous loss for the tool industry. Whoever considered buying task-specific machinery for their small wood shop until Norm made us feel like we couldn't live without it. Oh sure, you guys who have been into woodcraft for years knew that things could be done with a minimum of tooling, but newcomers like me just ate up morticers, edge sanders, and the like. Don't get me wrong, I like all these fancy contraptions. They let me overcome my lack of talent and ingenuity. I like to think the recession would have been insurmountable if not for Norm and his influence on my tool buying.

Thanks to Norm, Delta, Porter-Cable, and Festool, I can go down to my shop and after a few days I can emerge with some useless box that looks pretty good. What's more, I've occupied my mind with enough calculations to make me forget I flunked algebra.

We're all gonna miss you Norm.

Man, that's a kick in the teeth for generations to come. I've grown up watching Norm and love the show, but as they say, all good things must come to an end.

After re runs this year I was anticipating that this might be the end of new seasons . I started in woodworking because of the information form all of Mr. Morashes shows . I'm grateful for all the years Norm worked hard to bring us new projects and I still will tune in to the oldies but goodie shows when possible.
THANKS NORM THANKS MR. MORASH for all of those great shows. The new shows will be missed.

I remember watching Norm going back 20 years. I was in my thirties but he gave me such a passion and desire to work with wood,, the same passion that my dad had as I grew up. I think one thing that we could do to show our support to Norm would be to continue to watch his shows and visit his website and store. One day we will all remember him as we did Sam but on a differrent plane. We Luv Ya, Norm.

A great loss indeed, Norm is a very skilled woodworker and I really enjoyed the program, the New Yankee Workshop will be missed.
