|The New Yankee Workshop Online: Carved Wooden Signs|
Way back in 1988, when we needed to make a sign for "The New Yankee Workshop," we turned to a small company in Lincoln New Hampshire whose signs we admired and asked them to create ours. We have always wanted to pay them a visit and to find out how professionals create these masterpieces. In this program Norm does just that and finds out how a router, a sand blaster, a hand chisel, and a sophisticated computerized machine can be used to carve modern signs. Then he learns how the professionals design, hand letter, paint, and gild these beauties. He returns to The New Yankee Workshop and applies the lessons he's learned to his own collection of shop-made signs.
