|The New Yankee Workshop Online: Flagpole|
Years ago on This Old House we featured the installation of a wooden flagpole on our Napa, California project. Now Norm has taken up the challenge on making one in The NewYankee Workshop. Made of strong Douglas fir, glued with epoxy, painted with marine paint and mounted on a welded steel ground anchor designed by master welder Bob Diorio, this flagpole is easy to maintain because the whole pole can be lowered to the ground whenever necessary. Be the first in your neighborhood to make your own flagpole.
Norm made a couple of field trips in this episode. He went to Larry Stearns' copper shop in Westford, Vermont called Vulcan, and went to Nantucket twice.
