Jimmy DiResta holds a master builder certification, but that’s just the tip of the expertise iceberg. Jimmy is also a master of inventing, designing and creating just about anything. This amazingly multitalented builder, artist, inventor and teacher earned his B.F.A. from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, where he still teaches a course in 3D design. After graduating, Jimmy’s love of novelty drove him to the toy industry, which provided what may be the perfect outlet for his unique blend of left-brain creativity and right-brain analytical skills. Jimmy currently designs and builds custom home fixtures in his East Village shop. On DIY Network’s new series, Against the Grain, watch Jimmy at his best and taking woodworking to a whole new level.
