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

Five projects address areas of activity in the home: Staircase Upgrades (balustrades and newel posts), Kitchen Cabinet Retrofits (simple, affordable kitchen renovations), Bathroom Storage Solutions (clever wooden cabinets with easy to use hardware), Home Entertainment Designs (new woodworking ideas for every home), and Architectural Wooden Accents (window and wall bracket accents).

IBEW explores shop lighting solutions during the episode featuring Veneer Inlays (decorative wood inlays in furniture). Other Season 20 projects are: Shop Jigs (making things to simplify shop tasks and revolutionary new clamping designs); Recycled Hardwood (affordable solutions with reclaimed wood); Thinking Toys 2 (puzzle joinery in furniture designs), Segmented Turnings (magic in turned wood); Outdoor Garden Benches and Pergolas (building to last and outdoor finishing solutions); and Scroll Saw Gifts (relaxing skill-building cutting projects).

Scott's woodshop at Piqua, Ohio, is the set for most of the shows, although the WBGU production team sometimes travels around America to shoot footage.

Call your local public television station to find out THE AMERICAN WOODSHOP's airtime, or go to to view an episode after it airs. Viewers who want to make the shows part of their reference library can purchase season DVDs. "All the proceeds go to help support PBS," Scott said.

Woodcraft Supply, LLC, is the industry leader in providing a wide variety of top quality products, educational opportunities and one-on-one guidance to woodworkers of all skill levels.
