Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman host and executive produce Making It, which puts the spotlight on makers. This is a six-episode competition show featuring eight artists from around the United States. They compete against each other on different projects to see who can make the best handmade items. Each show centers on a theme inspired by crafting trends. Crafts are judged by experts Simon Doonan and Dayna Isom Johnson.
Poehler and Offerman have great respect for and interest in crafting. “Poehler is a self-proclaimed crafting novice who has long harbored a secret appreciation for those who can imagine and execute incredible things by hand,” says NBC in a statement. “Offerman is a New York Times best-selling author in the woodworking space and is well known for his love for making a variety of objects himself.”
During Making It Season 3 Episode 3, Poehler and Offerman announce the biggest challenge in the show’s history—the mega craft. Offerman says this challenge is so big that it will be the only challenge they work on for that day.
The challenge for the day is to re-design a closet and turn it into a play or workspace for someone special in the contestants’ lives. The custom space is required to have a handcrafted decorative item, light, and storage space. The judges rate each space on appearance, how it’s made, and how it makes them feel.
Poehler says the purpose of the craft is to make things for other people. Offerman added that now more than ever, people are really in need of their own space to attend virtual classes, work, or just have a place to get away.
The contestants went all out on this closet project. They didn’t hold back when it came to creating a unique space for their loved ones. Here’s a rundown of what they created:
Melanio was the winner of the mega craft. The judges were impressed by his craftsmanship and attention to detail.
Who was sent home? Unfortunately, Kaviya didn’t make the cut. She was sent home because the judges felt there were too many functional issues with her design. The other contestants were sad and surprised to see Kaviya go. She had a bubbly personality and everyone loved working with her. Hopefully, we’ll see her again on another show.
Making It airs Thursdays on NBC at 8:00 p.m. ET.
