|New Yankees At Work: Fireplace Mantle|
David: Fireplace Mantle
Jeff Buschette, MinnesotaI've enjoyed watching The New Yankee Workshop for many years and Norm has inspired me to take on most of my own home improvment projects. Norm's fireplace mantle design was perfect for my new fireplace surround.
It's the season finale...and series Norm is taking this woodworking project home. Between shooting The New Yankee Workshop and This Old House, Norm rarely has time to build anything for himself these days. And, like the rest of us, he readily admits his own home is "a work in progress." With his own Rumford fireplace awaiting adornment, Norm takes the opportunity to design this classic Colonial fireplace mantle and builds it using a variety of woods and moldings readily available at home centers nationwide.
