Creativity is the power for innovation and everyday people are getting more and more creative. Instead of only buying, people are starting to make things, focusing more on DIY projects, fostering innovation and creating a new economic era. The Maker Movement is one of the most important movements of today and that’s why we should celebrate all Makers that innovate, experiment and try new things out there. No matter what tools you choose, if you’re a Maker, join us!

 

Today we give thumbs up to the impressive work of Jimmy DiResta, one of the greatest Makers of our time. DiResta has a vast portfolio of mind-blowing DIY projects – so if you want to focus on your projects this year, you should follow him and learn from the best. On his Twitter profile Jimmy says he makes all good things – and that’s completely true. He not only makes all good things but also makes almost everything -  from guitars to furniture to all the objects you can imagine.

 

DiResta not only creates but also loves to recreate, recicle and rebuild – and that’s what making is all about. In one of his greatest shows, Dirty Money, DiResta found trash or second hand goods and transformed them into unique products to sell at the Hell’s kitchen Flea Market in New York. From an old coffin turned into a bar, to a customized gramophone and a refurbished neon sign, DiResta’s creativity was always on fire.

 

DiResta works on his DIY projectson his New York garage – that is also a masterpiece of years of hard work created by his gold hands.

 

So, if you want to get inspiration for your DIY projects, this is it. Let’s watch some of the greatest pieces DiResta created.
