New Yankee Workshop

Finish And Install

Season 20, Episode 9 of 13

Often the weak link in home shop built kitchens is a professional finish that looks good and stands up to wear and tear. Norm teams up with his painter as he sprays on two smooth undercoats followed by a brushed on finish coat that looks great and should wear well. Then Norm begins the process of installing his cabinets. He carefully surveys the existing space, analyzes the conditions, creates a level reference line and sets the cabinets to floor and wall. Sharing all the tips and techniques learned over many years, Norm puts the cabinets together with the precision and accuracy viewers have come to expect from this master craftsman. Then, with every appliance installed, every surface polished and prepped, the lights hung, the floor polished and the stone counters revealed, Norm is able to stand back and enjoy the satisfaction of having created a masterpiece. The dream kitchen is finished and open for business.
