In each episode of DiResta (every other Wednesday), artist and master builder Jimmy DiResta (Dirty Money, Hammered, Against the Grain, Trash for Cash) lets MAKE into his workshop, to look over his shoulder while he builds whatever strikes his fancy.
In this episode Jimmy whips out a beautiful oak-framed mirror. He doesn't spray paint it with his name as he normally does with what he makes, but he does manage to work a DiResta tag in there anyway. And watch for the simple, but clever way he scribes the oval for the template.
