RE: Norm - The Early Years

If you go to the NYW website, the featured project is a drop leaf table which requires some M&T joints.
Here is Norm with an early contractor's saw making cheek cuts for the tenons using ONLY the fence.
This was obviously long before Delta coughed up a tenoning jig for the show and Norm's message of safety.
BTW, grew up with a painted drop leaf table as a kitchen table long before plastic laminate existed.
Our table was laminated with linoleum.
Need, the mother of invention.

Just finished watching "Blanket Chest" #104. Boy, that was strange seeing him use that old TS and router table.

Nothing at all uncommon about that; still have several of them including grandmother's kitchen table around. Based on appearance I think it's highly likely at least one or two of these were manufactured this way rather than being home-brewed covered.
