Co-hosts Scott and Suzy Phillips encourage each viewer to put “Hands to Work” and “Express Yourself” in the 13 Season 28 episodes of “The American Woodshop” that will begin airing on Monday, January 11. Check your local PBS TV station for airtimes or watch on CREATE® TV, YouTubeTV, or 24/7 at wbgu.org/americanwoodshop.

Woodcraft Supply, “Woodcraft Magazine,” Rikon, PS Wood Machines, and the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio sponsor this public television series. WBGU TV in Bowling Green, Ohio, produces “The American Woodshop.” The show is carried by 94.4% of the top 25 markets and 96% of the top 100.

“Woodcraft and ‘Woodcraft Magazine’ are pleased to continue sponsoring ‘The American Woodshop’,” President and CEO Jack Bigger said. “Once again, Scott and Suzy Phillips have gathered an appealing variety of projects and techniques to make woodworking enjoyable for viewers of this public television favorite.”

Coming in Season 28:
“Why work with wood? The reason can be as simple as to save money. Yet for most, it’s an expression of creative drive. Woodworking leads to true satisfaction,” Scott and Suzy wrote in promotional material for Season 28. “Every episode of Season 28 shares a path to successful expression in wood. You can feel the satisfaction and pride that can’t be bought in a store.”

Scott and Suzy partnered with “Woodcraft Magazine” for some of the Season 28 projects. Scott said he and Suzy used Woodcraft plans, keeping the fundamentals but stylizing a bit to make pieces uniquely theirs – for example adding some different woods to a piece.
