Woodcraft Welcomes Scott Phillips
No Reservations Required
Woodcraft of Toledo is excited to host Scott Phillips, star of the PBS series, The American Woodshop, on Saturday, December 2nd. Scott, a master woodworker, will be doing demonstrations, answering questions, and leading woodworking discussions. He will also be available for photos and autographs.
Scott has been woodworking for 40+ years, having started in his father’s workshop at the age of eleven. His passion started with walnut shelves and boxes which eventually lead to furniture and restoration of antique furniture. Scott still considers Chippendale and Shaker furniture styles his design favorites. Today Scott’s full-time woodworking enterprise is founded around his degree in Forestry. He has been quoted as saying, “if you want to build great furniture, you have to respect the woods."
Scott is active in habitat reforestation and the support of woodworking schools. His wife, Suzy, joined his PBS series two years ago as co-host. The American Woodshop is in their 25th year and is broadcast locally on WBGU television station and their online site.
