Three of the country's most experienced and talented trim carpenters have just six hours to build an 8'x10' entertainment center designed to a specific theme. Erik Davin, 36, Atlanta, Ga., is given a Western theme, Roman Palomino, 39, Aurora, Colo., has a modern theme, and Isaac Davis, 36, Santa Ana, Calif., will create his project with an Asian theme. Each entertainment center must hold a 42" TV, two components and four cabinets with open shelving. The competitor's skills are pushed to the limit as they must complete a project in less than one day what usually takes up to a week. They run into troubles with time, materials, tools and each has to make design adaptations in order to meet their deadline. A twist is added about an hour in, as host Chris Grundy informs them they must move their projects up a set of stairs, put it in place in the "living room" and decorate it to their theme with a set of provided props. They'll have to make adjustments if they want to move these massive entertainment centers and be crowned the DIY Dominator. Guest judges are Ari Larraz, general contractor with Larraz Building Excellence, Ethan Hutchinson, woodworker and custom furniture maker, and Roese Ramp, an interior designer and owner of Alchemy Interiors Inc.
