For the GMC DIY Challenge, they labeled my competition an Interior Designer and a Custom Fabricator, and me a Professional “Maker” (their quotes). So I’ll try and do all you fellow “Makers” proud! We have one hour to hunt through the Habitat for Humanity ReStore to pick our materials, and then upcycle it all into a piece of furniture for a Habitat family. I recruited my brother, Nico Rosso to be my teammate and we’re ready to get started (after we run some errands in the truck).
This All Terrain GMC Sierra was loaned to me by GMC for the DIY Challenge starting tomorrow – in the meantime, they had to know I’d USE it use it. Right?
Tool load out for the DIY Challenge. About to get started. I also shaved my head extra close – it’s a competition after all.
We’re ready to get turned loose on the ReStore.
This is how you tell if I’m thinking.
Loading the choice piece we picked from the ReStore.
I can’t reveal what we’re making. But we are making a lot of sawdust.
After a long day of competitive DIY up cycling – Disaronno!
What in the world am I making?
Consulting the (long) list of things to do.
Finally – the finished piece!
The GMC DIY Challenge is over (no spoilers) but I get to drive the All Terrain edition GMC Sierra for another day or so. I don’t know if it was actually designed after the Halo Warthog, but you could definitely take on the Covenant in this thing.
I’ll let you all know when the video of the event drops and we can see what happens. STAY TUNED!
