Forstner and Fillister are brothers. And woodworkers. Through demonstrations and hands-on participation, they will teach you how to build a dining room table in one hour or less … if they can agree how to proceed.

What follows is a journey full of power tools, sawdust and sibling rivalry. Who is a better woodworker? Who knows the best way to build a table? And who is the better son?

A World Premiere, created as part of the under development program.
