As Tim Taylor and long-suffering sidekick Al Borland on Home Improvement’s show-within-a-show Tool Time, Tim Allen and Richard Karn made quite the comedy duo. They’re not joking now, as they reunite to host a new series—with woodworking YouTube star April Wilkerson assisting—that explores the history and evolution of tools. Each 30-minute episode takes a basic tool (blades, magnets, lasers) and breaks down its past, present and future. Along the way, they test drive big machines in the field and welcome skilled makers into Tim’s shop for “Tim’s Maker Challenge,” where they’re tasked to add more power to everyday tools.
