The Woodshop Known Across America

Scotsman Co. General Store is home to Ben Napier's famous woodshop. Inspired by general stores of yesteryear, the Scotsman General is sure to remind you of a place from your own hometown. With hundreds of glass bottled sodas to choose from, unique candies, and snacks, you'll definitely want to sit and stay a spell. If you stick around long enough, there's a chance you'll see Ben and his team filming the next season of HGTV's Home Town.

Ben films episodes of Ben's Workshop in the woodshop, as he shares his expertise in craftsmanship and carpentry with celebrity guests each week. Some of the guests to grace the woodshop include:

  • Astronaut Scott Kelly
  • Tennis legend Martina Navratilova
  • Comedian Loni Love
  • Multi-platinum country star Chris Lane

Ben's visitors are in for a fun Southern experience — building iconic wood projects and making surprise visits to donate them to the community or a neighbor. All of this is seen through the glass window in the Scotsman General store!

"We built the Scotsman General store and woodshop because we want to elevate the skill of craftsman building in America. We also wanted people to experience the behind-the-scenes of the TV show they love. It's a special experience to see the final product being built by Ben and the team." — Josh Nowell

While you watch the show being filmed, grab a vintage glass bottle soda, your favorite snack and stick around to watch our woodworking team hard at work.
