Bob Vila tooled around on the PBS program alongside master carpenter Norm Abram starting back in 1979 but Vila demoed his involvement a decade later after an endorsement disagreement … the show was then contracted out to Steve Thomas … who continue to build the show after that.
Vila can still be spotted whittling around on the Home Shopping Network selling tools named after himself.
