This just in… Fine Woodworking just received word that the New Yankee Workshop is ending after 21 seasons on PBS according to Patrick Ramirez, a spokesperson for WGBH Boston. Woodworking TV 2.0If you thought woodworking TV died with the retirement of the New Yankee Workshop, think again. But, if this news is getting you down, it’s not too late to see this woodworking icon up close and personal in just a few days. And, New Yankee plan fans can continue to buy projects plans at the New Yankee Web site as well as order DVDs, find Q&As, etc.
So, now audience, back to you… what are your thoughts on the New Yankee's retirement?
If the show were presented as a sustained, continuous webinar, it would be possible to reinvent "the show" (I'd surmise that it would be at least a complete reboot of the show and more likely a relaunch) with far lower levels of financial underwriting than would be necessary for television distribution.
PBS you need to continue this as there are a lot of us out there that watch Norm and enjoy this hobby. We can only hope for a Brett Favre like return(s) or maybe pbs can show the series from the first to the last episode.
01191943 writes: Always looked forward to seeing Norm in that dream workshop, but I suppose this is the result of the suits on the TV networks that think it is time for young blood to reach their intended audience, BIG mistake, I would far rather watch Norm who has the years of experience and knowledge that comes with working with wood.
Rvette writes: Norm, I join everyone else in saying how sorry I am that your show cannot continue. For some of us woodworking or carpentry may be or has been our livelihood and it continues to be our hobby in the workshop as well.

I have done woodwork since I was a child and enjoyed Norm and the New Yankee Workshop weekly show. Some of us have other jobs outside of woodworking and yet working with wood and a furniture plan is one way in which we enjoy spending our time. However, something many of us do have in common is the desire to constantly improve what skills we do have.

There’s just something good about having a wood shop where we can take our time and focus on our craft to build the things that we want.
Perhaps, there are of us that received some sort of training or maybe we just learned on our own. Perhaps there is something inside of us that continually reminds us how and why we first got involved in the woodcraft.
Four subjects for woodworkers of all skill levels are being offered for a fraction of the price because The Woodworking Shows are bringing them to you. You can also try internet but it can be very hard to find a woodworking plan which is suitable for your needs. Ted McGrath, creator of Teds Woodworking guide, is a professional woodworker and he shares his woodworking plans with the woodworking enthusiasts.

It’s just nice to be able to have an idea in our heads, to be able to work with our hands, and see a wood project being created. In either case, our woodworking skills define where we are in the wood craft today and what we are able to accomplish at any given time. Maybe it is the sense of pride that comes when we know that we are doing the best we can with the skills we currently have. His work has appeared in Design Book Six and Design Book Seven, and his shop was featured in The Workshop by Taunton Press.
It’s also knowing and trusting that we can and are improving towards our potential with each and every new woodworking challenge. This comprehensive woodworking guide includes all the information you need to make impressive woodworking projects without wasting your valuable time on useless woodworking plans. I rarely learn anything of value from this old house but the techniques I have learned from Yankee are numerous and invaluable. Woodworking skills allow us to be able to create more and for a woodworker this is a sense of freedom. So often I have been confronted with a woodworking dilemma in my woodworking hobby that you have solved for me.
For a new woodworker this may mean learning how to sharpen a chisel, whereas for an experienced woodworker it may mean having all of our plane irons honed and hand planes ready for use when needed. I would also like to know who took the show off so we could lobby for a return--or at least re-run the shows again. All good things come to an end, I just hope maybe Norm will come out with an occassional show, it would be like seeing a long lost friend.
