Woodchat with Jimmy DiResta’s First Take on Top 10 Tools



We were lucky to have Jimmy DiResta join us for Woodchat on December 4th, 2013. After some Google+ technical goop that we had to work through, we had a great chat with Jimmy.

If you don’t know Jimmy, his family, or their work you’re missing out. Star of the Discovery Series Dirty Money with his brother John and nephew Matthew “Rat Boy” the trio turns trash into treasure. Jimmy demonstrates skills in design, woodworking, metalworking, finishing, vacuforming, metal casting, and on and on. The show is funny too – with some bleeps here and there and crazy flea market characters. Jimmy also has a great YouTube channel and also makes videos for Make Magazine.
