|The New Yankee Workshop Online: Hat Rack|
Norm introduces viewers to the seventeenth-century craft of wood steaming when he creates this charming hat rack out of oak. To learn the proper techniques, Norm pays a visit to craftsman Mike Dunbar, a well-known Windsor chair builder and teacher
"Although we get few hats to hang in the workshop, this good looking reproduction of an old timey bentwood original Norm built years ago, stills hangs there. It's useful for shop aprons, visitors coats and odd items like the warning flag from the engine of a mothballed B 52 we found in Arizona a while back. The top shelf stores a few of those devilish puzzles we sell ( see: New Yankee Collectors Edition Jigsaw Puzzle) "
