Good With Wood is being produced by the Cardiff office of UK indie Plimsoll Productions and will be presented by Mel Giedroyc.

Each episode of the 6×60’ series will centre on a big build in which the contestants create large and imaginative wooden structures and objects, as expert judges scrutinise their designs, techniques and skills.

The executive producers are Grant Mansfield and Karen Plumb. It was ordered by Daniel Fromm, commissioning editor for popular factual at Channel 4. The series will be distributed worldwide by Magnify Media.

Karen Plumb, head of factual entertainment at Plimsoll Productions, said: “In a throwaway world, more and more people are turning to woodwork to connect them to nature and their creativity. We’re delighted to be making this escapist and ambitious competition for Channel 4.”

Fromm said: “Joyous, insightful and entertaining, this series is feel-good fact ent and an antidote to our times, as it celebrates the extraordinary craftsmanship and artistry of the country’s finest woodworkers.”
