Handmade: Britain’s Best Woodworker

In this exciting new primetime series for Channel 4, nine woodworking enthusiasts battle it out across six weeks in a bid to be crowned Britain’s Best Woodworker.

Woodworking is a much-loved hobby in the UK. Millions of men and women potter around in their sheds and gardens making wooden objects, but this is the show that celebrates their craftsmanship.

This inspirational series takes place in a custom-built workshop filled to the brim with the very best tools and wood; nestled in stunning ancient Welsh woodland. Revelling in the unabashed beauty of the surroundings, this series is a bucolic sensory overload.

Our 9 woodworkers have to impress judges RIBA Stirling prize-winning architect and so-called King Of Wood Alex De Rijke, and highly-acclaimed founder of The London School Of Furniture-Making Helen Welch. Over 2 working days the woodworkers will create hugely impressive big builds, and have to navigate the skills challenge…

The show uncovers the skills and characters of a very special and intriguing world – the world of woodworking – and does so with passion, jeopardy, scale of endeavour – and a bit of sawdust, of course.
