He just seems so cuddly.

Maybe it’s because I grew up watching him. He’s like the father of woodworking to me.

By the way, does anyone have a mailing address for Norm. I am sure he gets a thousand letters a day but then one has to try…

I have totally had a crush on Norm. The flanel and beard is a very good look for him, and all of the things he can do with his hands…..Anyway, glad I’m not the only one.

crush, ... Norm is more like a religious icon, to me, he and the last jewish carpenter (2000 yrs ago) both walk on water ! He’s done more to raise awareness and bring woodworking into the mainstream
