Handmade: Britain's Best Woodworker | Series 2 Preview (Channel 4)

The competition to find Britain's Best Woodworker is back for a second series.



Host Mel Giedroyc holds the key to the fabulously equipped workshop, nestled deep in the ancient Welsh woodland, where she's joined by 10 of the UK's top woodworking enthusiasts, who will battle it out for the coveted prize of being named Britain's Best Woodworker.



The woodworkers will fight hammer and nail, building wonderful works of wood in just two days that combine epic scale with fine craftsmanship and cutting-edge design. They'll also face a range of surprise challenges that test their core skills.




But they'll have to impress the judges, entrepreneur and woodworking expert Sophie Sellu and design academic Tom Dyckhoff, to remain in the competition.


In this first episode, Mel Giedroyc welcomes 10 of Britain's top woodworking enthusiasts to the workshop, where they have just two days to saw, turn and joint their way to producing a dining table inspired by a country of their choice.




The pressure is on to create something strong and beautiful that will impress the judges and keep them safe from elimination. The woodworkers also have the chance of a lifeline: the winner of the skills challenge is guaranteed survival if they can impress expert judges Sophie Sellu and Tom Dyckhoff with their veneer panelling.



Who will carve out their place in the next round, and who will fail to make the cut?


Handmade: Britain's Best Woodworker returns Wednesday 21st September.
