How to Repair a Damaged Clapboard

03-10-2015 02:47 AM by Antoine Rizzoti | 0 comments »

The wood siding clapboards on your house will expand during hot weather and shrink during cold weather. Over time, this repeated shrinking and expanding can cause the clapboards to warp, split, and crack.

1950s Cass Toy Co Chest Restoration #1: Research and Documentation

03-01-2015 10:23 PM by JenTWG | 3 comments »

This chest is my father’s and he asked if I would restore it for him and fix most of the damage. I first started by researching the chest.

This vase is roughly 8×10 inches, and requires a block 8×8x 10 inches long. Use as many contrasting layers as you like, leaving the thinner layers to the outside.
