The folks at Dickel ordered this table as a gift. The design was chosen out of 6 concepts I sent over. The tree was cut down at my “Homestead” in the Catskills of NY state. The barrel was provided from the George Dickel distillery. The glass is from ADC glass in the Lower East Side on NYC. Thank you for watching
Just one question: If you go to all the trouble to reuse the wood, why wouldn’t you recycle the nails you pulled?
I could watch Jimmy DiResta all day long. How does he know how to do everything?!
This is the second installment of the restoration of my 1911 Chandler & Price printing press , i get the frozen parts moving agin for first time in 20-30 years. This press was used a decoration outside (in the rain) of an antique shop in the Catskills.
Here’s what to do with your old plank this weekend.
(Not to be confused with Old Greg – that is entirely different activity)
I found this old plank at the waters edge under the Brooklyn bridge few years ago. In this video i simply add 1″x1″ steel legs, TIG welded together by my GF Taylor. The texture of the drift wood was too nice to do any thing but showcase it. I did remove the nails. enjoy and thank you.

Creating these movies is the best mental exercise for me. Having to create an object and tell the story with visuals only is the challenge each week and it keeps me inventing constantly. In the video above I call out my top five favorites videos and some of the inspiration that went into them.
Thank you MAKE and the maker community for supporting my video series.
