When a woodworker gets as famous as Norm Abram, people always want to know whether he does the work himself or has a bevy of assistants waiting in the wings. But this TV veteran has been perfecting his woodworking skills since he was a boy, when he made wooden toys for his sister. He uses an assistant only for cleanup and finishes. As host of The New Yankee Workshop, Abram has perfected the craft of inspiring others to take up woodworking as a hobby. Working in a 936-sq.-ft. workshop, he completes a typical show in two days, though the preparation can take weeks.
