THE AMERICAN WOODSHOP to Begin 20th Season, 2/9


Co-hosts Scott and Suzy Phillips selected 13 "Home Restorations" projects that mix fresh new ideas with traditional woodworking techniques for the 20th season of THE AMERICAN WOODSHOP that airs on PBS stations Saturday, February 9.

Woodcraft Supply, LLC, Delta Power Equipment, Biesemeyer, the Kreg Tool Company, the Gorilla Glue Company, and Easy Wood Tools fund THE AMERICAN WOODSHOP, which is produced by WBGU-TV in Bowling Green, Ohio, and carried on 350 plus PBS stations.

"Woodcraft is pleased to continue its sponsorship of THE AMERICAN WOODSHOP where Scott and Suzy Phillips offer inspiration and instruction to woodworkers looking for new ideas for building, turning and carving wood," Woodcraft president Jody Garrett said. "The show is an important part of Woodcraft's educational offering to woodworkers."

This is Suzy's second season as Scott's co-host. "We have a fantastic project lineup this season that focuses on our 'Home Restorations' theme and introduces innovations that 'rebuild, recycle and renew' beautiful spaces," Scott said. "And Suzy brings a fresh approach to woodworking with ideas that incorporate cabinetmaking, veneer work, furniture restoration, chip carving, scrollsawing and finishing techniques. Get your tools out and join us!"

The season opener (300th show) features tool cabinets, but not your ordinary tool storage containers. The Freestanding Tool Cabinets featured are perfectly designed American-inspired originals - and the IBEW (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers), the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), and the Toledo Electrical Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC) partner to add photovoltaic solar panels during the show.
