“Woodcraft congratulates Scott and Suzy Phillips as they begin the 30th season of ‘The American Workshop.’”

“The American Woodshop” Co-hosts Scott and Suzy Phillips began their 30th season with PBS on Monday, January 9, with the first of 13 new episodes based on the theme, “The Best Of!” Check local PBS TV stations for airtimes or watch on Create® TV, YouTube PBS TV, or 24/7 at wbgu.org/americanwoodshop.

“The American Woodshop” is produced by WGBU TV, Bowling Green, Ohio, and sponsored by Woodcraft Supply, “Woodcraft Magazine,” Rikon Power Tools, PS Wood Machines, and FurnitureBank of Central Ohio.

“Woodcraft congratulates Scott and Suzy Phillips as they begin the 30th season of ‘The American Woodshop’, a popular how-to series that offers valuable woodworking instruction and inspiration to viewers of 363+ PBS channels and online 24/7,” President and CEO Jack Bigger said.

A veteran woodworker who started woodworking in his father’s shop in 1966, Scott has learned the truth of this statement, which he shares frequently: “Make it your own with your own hands. Nothing can be more satisfying.”

Scott and Suzy hope that viewers will discover the same satisfaction in the projects and techniques they have selected for Season 30.

The first 2023 episode features a Vintage 4 Glass Candy Cabinet like ones popular in the 1930s and often found at a corner store. The four-sided glass and red oak display case is easy to build with simple tools, according to Scott. Blended Danish oil creates an old-world look, while tapered red oak plugs add the perfect finishing touch.
