We’re thrilled to announce that Jimmy DiResta has joined the MAKE family. You may know Jimmy as the co-star of the Discovery Channel’s Dirty Money, or from DIY Network’s Against the Grain, HGTV’s Hammered, and Fox’s Trash to Cash. Jimmy is an artist, designer, and master builder. His new MAKE video series, called simply DiResta, will showcase Jimmy in the shop doing what Jimmy does best, following his muse and making magic with a shop-full of power tools, artisan’s skill, and lots of flourish. Jimmy doesn’t say much. He doesn’t have to. He lets the the build process speak for itself. Watching Jimmy work is captivating, and looking over his shoulder, you learn a lot about the tools, materials, and processes he employs. We will also include his sketchbook images and some of his build notes in each of the video postings.

So please join me in welcoming Jimmy DiResta. And if you have any questions for Jimmy, please leave them in the comments below.
