Norm Abram is Retiring

Norm Abram's retirement from This Old House was announced yesterday.

PBS will air a tribute show to him titled The House that Norm Built. While Norm is 72 and has not appeared on camera for a while, it is sad to see him described as "hanging up his tool belt." I hope he continues woodworking in his retirement, as 72 years old is certainly not too old to do most things with wood. I hope he isn't ill, and I wonder if there's a deeper story to this.

I'm hoping to see him on a YouTube channel, but he doesn't seem to have much of an online presence.

Here's to the legend himself!

Have enjoyed Norm over the years in the past when he had his own show. Built a couple of his projects. The plans always were complete and great. Mission style grandfather clock now over 15 yrs old, a mission style king bed, about 10 years ago. Both working great.

Miss his shows.
