About This Show

Welcome to a world where barstools are made from baseball bats, pool tables convert to dining room tables and that dented fender on the side of the road is the missing ingredient for an amazing entertainment center. DIY Network's Against the Grain is the story of these creations and many more. In each episode, master builder Jimmy DiResta brings his unique blend of function and artistry to even the simplest of projects. Watch Jimmy tackle each project head-on, introducing us to his interesting network of friends and taking us to the places where he finds his inspiration and materials.
