After a tour of The New Yankee Workshop to preview the collection of furniture he will build in the first season, Norm visits a “retiring room” at the Hancock Shaker Village in western Massachusetts to find a model for a handcrafted medicine cabinet. Drawing inspiration from a looking glass and cabinet, Norm uses durable red oak and oak plywood to construct a medicine chest of his own design featuring box-joint joinery.
