“Woodcraft congratulates Scott and Suzy Phillips on another season of unique and educational shows. They continue to inspire viewers to elevate their craft as they responsibly create with wood,” Woodcraft President and CEO Jack Bigger said.

Woodcraft, “Woodcraft Magazine,” Rikon, PS Wood Machines, and Furniture Bank of Central Ohio sponsor the popular woodworking series on public television.

“Every episode of Season 29 shares a path to successful expression in wood,” Scott said. “You can smell the sawdust. You can hear the success of a project coming to life. You can experience the reward of using recycled wood. You can feel the satisfaction and pride that can’t be bought in a store.”

The season opener is all about the theme. A Tall Case Cabinet made with live edge Walnut slabs is the featured project. Also, Scott delivers a beautiful reclaimed table he made from a Walnut slab and recycled Chestnut Oak scraps from the Gertner Barn Project to the Gertner Family for the party room in their newly renovated barn. While there, Scott leads a discussion about greenwood reclamation.
