If you’re a fan of both Waco, Texas, and design shows, it’s your lucky day. There is a pilot debuting this week that checks all of your TV-loving boxes. A charming husband-and-wife duo? Check. Woodworking and furniture? Check. Interior design? Check. Waco, Texas? Double check. We can’t wait—and luckily, we don’t have to, because Wood Work, the brand-new pilot from the DIY Network, debuts Wednesday, March 8 at 7:30 p.m. EST on DIY Network. You don’t want to miss this one!
Wood Work will follow the adventures of Clint and Kelly Harp of Harp Design Co. Sound familiar? You may recognize Clint and Kelly from their appearances on HGTV’s Fixer Upper. On the show, we have seen glimpses of the fantastic pieces that Clint builds for our other favorite Waco duo, Chip and Joanna Gaines. We can’t wait to see more of the Harps’ projects; the pilot promises to share the ins and outs of their woodworking, design, and business adventures
However, the show is not the Harps’ first go at a spinoff: Last June they starred in Against the Grain, another DIY series that the network decided not to pursue further. The show “really didn’t show who we are, a band of guys and gals who work together in Waco,” Clint told the Waco Tribune. “They wanted more of that and more of Kelly and what she does.”

The title of the show’s pilot is “So Many Tables, So Little Time,” and will follow Clint, Kelly, and Harp Design Co. as they navigate competing deadlines and the woodworking needs of the Waco community. In the episode, tables are needed for the opening nights of both a wedding venue and a Waco-area distillery’s tasting room. The synopsis reads, “With so much to do in such a short time, will the team be able to get everything done with the old soul and craftsmanship they apply to everything they do? If not, there may just be countless angry brides and whiskey drinkers at their doorstep!”
We’re already cheering for the Harps and looking forward to the pilot of Wood Work on the DIY Network. (You can also find more info in Kelly and Clint’s recent Facebook Live Q&A.)
Wood Work premieres Wednesday, March 8 at 7:30 p.m. EST on the DIY Network.
