Are there any (or have there been?) woodworking competition shows?

I’d love to see stuff where people are given similar lumber and then fixed time to build “whatever”.

Only thing I’ve seen that was close was that show with Mike Holmes. Called something like “Next Great Handyman” or something like that. Entertaining show.

The United Brotherhood of Carpenter’s and Joiners has a competition every year for their construction and cabinet makers local apprentices. The locals have a “local” competition, then a state final then a national final, in a different location every year.
