Once every two weeks artist and craftsman Jimmy DiResta produces a new video for MAKE that shows his process of creating, fixing, or modifying something in his workshop. Instead of using music, Jimmy lets the sound of his power tools provide the soundtrack to his videos. Also, he rarely says anything in the videos. The effect is mesmerizing. These aren't how-to videos, but you can still learn quite a bit about tools and workshop practices by watching them.
In this video, Jimmy refurbishes an old hatchet.DiResta: Hatchet
