Fixer Upper skilled craftsman, Clint Harp, is getting his own reality show on DIY Network.
HGTV's DIY sister network has announced Wood Work, a new reality series starring Clint and his team as they create personalized spaces with custom furnishings for his Texas clients, will premiere Wednesday, May 9 at 10PM ET/PT.
Clint first appeared on HGTV's hit show Fixer Upper starring Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines in Waco, TX.
During the six-episode series of Wood Work, Clint and his fellow talented woodworkers and craftsmen will search for vintage lumber from Clint's private stash of wood as well as in salvage yards and old barns to build beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces.
Homeowners will have a room refreshed and decorated with Clint's handmade furniture, hardwood floors, mantles and countertops.
"I love it when the workshop is busy and full of energy -- it's just exciting," Clint said in a statement. "And we'll need all the energy we can get to tackle these woodworking projects."
In the premiere episode of Wood Work, Clint will be shown reviving a dull and underused bonus room in a 1950s ranch home in attempt to fulfill the family's wish for a multi-purpose space for entertaining and guests staying overnight.
Clint and his crew will craft a Murphy bed featuring a salvaged wood accent wall to conceal it when not in use. And the family will receive handmade hardwood floors in addition to a new and improved kitchenette and a rustic fireplace mantle.
The mantle will be made from "a century-old beam," according to the network, that "will bring warmth to the room and give the family a dream retreat in their own home."
DIY announced it had ordered Wood Work in June 2017.
"My wife Kelly and I quit our jobs and started this business," Clint said at the time of the show's pickup. "We're a creative crew of carpenters, artists and craftsman banging out custom furniture, home decor and any crazy cool thing our clients can dream up."
As for Fixer Upper, the fifth -- and final -- season aired its last episode earlier this month, and Chip and Joanna are currently expecting another child. About The Author:Elizabeth Kwiatkowski
