Hey all! A couple weeks ago i visited Jimmy Diresta in his workshop! During the email back-n-forth, i asked him if he could maybe evaluate me on the bandsaw so my mom would let me have one after a pro’s approval. He said yes! I also brought along some of my homemade slinsghots to show him, and to maybe inspire him. Please excuse my idiotic babbling in the video, i got excited and blew a fuse in my brain, hence the run on sentences and excessive clearing of my throat. :) Jimmy really is a sweet, caring guy who loves his fans as much as his fans love him.

Here’s Jimmy guiding me on the bandsaw:

Here i’m just showing jimmy some of my work! It feels good when someone(especially an artist like Jimmy) says “No freakin’ way” when you say you made something. :) I ended up giving him one, because he was so nice as to invite me over in the firstplace, and he gave me souvenirs too! But it felt good :)

watch with subtitles/CC on, because the mic on my camera ismt great.

I’m a big fan of Jimmy, since “Dirty Money.” He’s a very talented guy. He is the only silent video I will watch on youtube. I feel that if you make a how to video, you should explain what you are doing. Jimmy lets his work do the talking. I hope some of his talent rubbed off on you.

Same here! Check out “Diresta’s Cut” videos on a channel called “core77inc”! Unlike his usual videos, he does a voiceover in those. It really helps you understand his thought process, and his voice isn’t annoying like the “How It’s Made” guy’s. :D
