New Woodworker competition The Chop is coming to Sky History

Hosted by Lee Mack, Rick Edwards and master craftsman William Hardie, new factual entertainment series The Chop: Britain’s Top Woodworker is coming to Sky History.

The brand new carpentry contest sees ten of the country’s finest joiners gather in Epping
Forest to whittle, carve and chop their way to the final, to see who will be crowned Britain’s Top Woodworker and the chance to stage their own exhibition at the prestigious William Morris Gallery in London.


Hardie and the presenters will oversee the construction of a grand and spectacular cabin in the woods, with each standalone room based on a different historical theme, including a Victorian pub, Nelson’s cabin on HMS Victory, a Gothic bedroom, a Georgian hunting lodge, and a 1960s’ Mad Men-inspired lounge. Then, Lee, Rick and William and a team of guest judges will decide who progresses and who will get The Chop.

Stream The Chop: Britain’s Top Woodworker via NOW TV from Thursday 15 October.
