Clint Harp, maverick carpenter on HGTV’s smash hit Fixer Upper and the star of Wood Work on the DIY Network, presents his inspirational memoir that celebrates meaningful work, turning your craft into a career, and recognizing the importance of the journey itself.

While Clint Harp is now known as Chip and Joanna Gaines’s go-to table maker on Fixer Upper and a nationally acclaimed artisan, his life has not always been the DIY dream we see on the show. Ten years ago, he played the role of what he thought was a good husband, father, and provider, dutifully working at a sales job that came with a healthy paycheck. Yet he kept coming back to his unfilled dream of building furniture. With the support of his wife, the encouragement of a mentor, and a life full of lessons, he finally took the leap, quit his job and set out on a quest to become a carpenter. Without formal training, financing, workspace, or customers, the Harps were quickly on the edge of financial collapse. Than Clint met Chip Gaines at a gas station—a chance encounter that marked the next chapter on a wild ride Clint and his wife, Kelly, wouldn’t have imagined possible. Spanning Clint’s remarkable journey—from a childhood learning carpentry and hard work at his grandfather’s knee, through his struggles to balance pursuing his dreams with supporting his family, to his partnership with Chip and Joanna Gaines and the many adventures and misadventures of filming Fixer Upper—Handcrafted is part memoir and part manual for dreamers. Clint provides unvarnished, thoughtful reflections on a path that is possible for anyone bold enough to pursue it.

    Clint and Kelly Harp's "backstory" isn't what you'd think. I really enjoyed the way Clint told his story using the stages of building a table. The illustrations were simple but beautiful.

    Great book. Through years watching Fixer Upper, I always especially enjoyed the parts with Clint. I wanted to know more about him and his family. Now,delightfully, I know more -- much more. This book is VERY interesting. Even though the Harps do not know me, I am just plain proud of them. They have determination and integrity -- a fine example of inspiration.

Perhaps more than skill, mentorship, or money, we learn that faith and persistence are the most important equipment to have in a carpenter’s toolkit. Highly recommended!

    Was/am a fan of "Fixer Upper" TV show and appreciated the carpentry skills of Clint Harp. Saw the episode when the renovation of the Harp's home was featured on the show. It was interesting to learn Clint and Kelly's backstory -- of all the ups and downs in his career, the variety of jobs, the influence of his grandfather on his dream to become a furniture maker and how that dream finally became a reality which included it's own ups and downs.

    A good book by Clint from Fixer Upper that follow his story from being a kid through to being famous on Fixer Upper and then getting his own show. Nice to see that he never gave up and kept on going. An inspriring read, especially for those people who have an idea for a business and need a bit of encouragement (although there are plenty of warning tales in the book!)

    Clint has long been my favorite face on Fixer Upper and I was thrilled to read his book. It was an easy enjoyable read all about the path Clint has taken in his life. Through ups & downs, his story is funny, sad and inspirational. He teaches us to NEVER give up on your dreams. Fantastic read!!

    I wasn't really enjoying this as it mostly focuses on carpentry. Those interest ed in that will definitely enjoy this memoir though. Thank you to Edelweiss and Simon & Schuster for providing me with an Advanced Reader's Copy.

    I have enjoyed watching Clint on Fixer Upper and the book reads just as I perceived him to be. The focus on their lack of money and being overextended just made me sad. I’d venture to guess most people in their situation would have filed bankruptcy. It’d be an awful way to live.

    My dad knows Clint because they used to go to church together, and now my family watches Fixer Upper, so this was fun to read!
