3 'Fixer Upper' Secrets from Carpenter Clint Harp
Fixer Upper may have wrapped filming last year, but our obsession with Chip, Jo, and the rest of the HGTV show cast is showing no signs of waning. That's why we were so excited when we found a new interview of Clint Harp speaking to Fox News, revealing little-known facts about the show and life after it. Here are three of the most interesting things we learned:
1. Clint is still crafting wares for the Gaines fam.
Clint has been busy at work on his recently published book, Handcrafted: A Woodworker's Story, but he's also found time to contribute to ongoing projects with Chip and Jo. "A few months ago I made a 7x7 square dining table from solid white oak which went into [Joanna's] private dining room at their restaurant here in Waco, Magnolia Table," Clint told Fox News. "That was an honor for me," he added, later noting that Joanna Gaines still calls him up when she needs help on carpentry-related enterprises.
2. Some of Clint's favorite moments never made it to your TV screen.
"There was one time where we all sat down together, and our kids were at the shop with us, and Chip picked up some sandwiches, I think from a local sandwich shop, and Chip, Jo, Kelly [Clint's wife] and I were just sitting on the floor of the shop eating, staring out the back looking at our kids [who were eating and playing], all of us kind of thinking like, ‘What the heck are we doing?'" he admitted in the interview, reflecting on the early days before all of their careers entered the public's eye.

3. Clint would gladly team up with the Gaineses again.
Though Clint has "no idea" if a Fixer Upper reboot would ever happen, it's clear the talented carpenter would be glad to join forces with Waco's First Family for an encore. "If the Gaines do anything, and they want me to be a part, they know I'd love to," Clint told Fox News. "If there's room for me anywhere in what they're doing, I'd love to be a part. They're awesome," he added.
Clint, you've already got us daydreaming.
