Yes, we're great bake-off watchers chez W2S this new prog has been christened "chop-off" for brevity....I suppose it was fairly harmless nonsense.
Same format as Bake Off and Sewing Bee.
Come to think I found "The Great British Sewing Bee" quite watchable. Maybe I should have taken up dress making instead of woodwork. Too late now!
no that was "the chop" (I think) on sky, one contestant had '88' prominently tattooed, which is a fairly well established white power thing. I would have thought they could have edited him out and at least shown the show in some form, albeit much shorter, but perhaps he won?Did this get pulled last year because of someone with an offensive tattoo?
Totally agree, he and Radha are definately my favourites at the moment.I thought this was seriously impressive, anyone who can knock out a laminated curved roof on a rock solid double bed in two days gets my vote. The guys 20 years old and a self-taught 'Builder'? Hell's teeth yes. In fact, I'll put a 20 spot on him to win the series.
Ok, by his own admission his carving was "terrible" But the kid shows promise!

Just found this on C4's press releaseWho is he? And what are his wood working credentials?
ETA: I know I'm going a little 'all-in' on this lad, but is there ANYone here who could have made that bed in two days, at 20 years old?C4 said:21 October 2021
