The new program was created by the makers of ‘The Repair Shop’. Each of the hour-long episodes follows Jay Blades and his volunteers, who build furniture for deserving locals in a workshop.
Looking forward to the new series, Jay said, “So many people across the country have given back to their communities, now it’s time for my community workshop to give them back.”
Patrick Holland, the controller of BBC Two, is also looking forward to the new show.

He stated, “Jay is a special talent and I am delighted that he will open the doors of his new workshop on BBC Two. It promises to be filled with great crafting skills, beautiful objects, and amazing community stories. “
Jay previously admitted that he finds the job incredibly rewarding.
He shared, “The feel good factor you get when you fix something or redesign a chair and put another fabric on it, and you step back and look at it.
“It’s almost like you have that virtual pat on the back that you gave yourself.”
Jay also loves seeing men express their feelings on “The Repair Shop”, having been a “macho man” themselves for so long.
He said, “We still have the idea that men don’t do that.
“The show is always about when men show emotion for someone they love. I’ve lived a macho man for a long time and haven’t really embraced that emotional side.
“You don’t know how someone will take it if they take Mickey away from you. Because not many men do it, when you do it is a lonely experience. “
