On this episode of DiResta, Jimmy is asked by a friend to create something for an auction. Given that the friend runs an organization ( that facilitates the reuse/recycling of props from film and TV, Jimmy created a unique storage cabinet, “junk doors,” using some of the junk drawer contents he found in her shop.

In each bi-monthly episode of DiResta (every other Wednesday at 2pm PT), artist and master builder Jimmy DiResta (“Dirty Money,” “Hammered,” “Against the Grain,” “Trash for Cash”) lets us into his workshop, to look over his shoulder while he builds whatever strikes his fancy.

More details on the build and Jimmy’s notes here:
