I love it when Norm is building a piece of furnature and makes a comment about something being "easy".
Like yeah Norm, if I had a workshop with a million dollars worth of woodworking equipment, it probably would be easy!
Now can you explain to me how to do it with just a cheep table saw and a Dewalt kit?
If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
Speaking of doing lots with relitively few tools (and none of them power tools either). I don't remember his name, or the name of his show (great help ain't I?), but he did everything the old fashioned way. His workshop was full of old tools, none power tools, and some nifty looking benches and custom jigs & fixtures.
Also, it was somewhat entertaining to see him get at least one cut and be bleeding everywhere. Not because I like gore, but it just kept things more real and it was cool he never wanted to edit it out to make things appear perfect.
"Tool Time" has to be the all time best.
What was the girl's name? she was hot.
One of the best Tool Time episodes was the "Man's Bathroom".
Anybody remember it? Entire thing (walls, floor, ceiling) was done in stainless steel and the toilet reclined so you could watch TV and take a dump at the same time!
Southern Steel- just 30 mi or so up the road from my house.
Strange to see stuff on there that I drive by each day.
Woodwrights shop pretty good, sense of humor,too.
Was making Thomas Jefferson's walking stick/tripod field chair, says "This part has to be pretty strong, or he wouldn't have been known as father of country".
And the chair toss thing at end of show, like he gets mad and throws it down.
