PARKERSBURG, WV - As co-hosts of the PBS TV series The American Woodshop, Scott and Suzy Phillips are changing the show’s focus starting this season. 

As usual, they will present 13 new projects, built this year around the theme, “Learning Tool Tips – Woodworking Legacies.” The difference is that the projects are scheduled for auction, and the proceeds will be donated to two Ohio organizations that provide furniture for those who need it and who teach the craft of woodworking.

Scott’s desire to inspire woodworkers is reflected in a new tag line he is using in the show’s publicity – ‘Your Woodworking Matters.’

“‘Your Woodworking Matters’ means that whatever you make has lasting value. I support the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio and the University of Rio Grande woodworking scholarship. These are just a few of the many ways that my projects are used to support lasting missions with heart,” Scott said.

The American Woodshop is produced by WBGU TV, Bowling Green, Ohio, and sponsored by Woodcraft Supply, Rikon Power Tools, Kreg Tool Co. and Easy Wood Tools.
