Restoring A Mid Century Modern Bureau

In this restoration video I work on a mid century modern bureau made by Jentique.  I need to remove water stains, scratches and the old finish before refinishing, remove a handle that someone had added and fill with a new veneer patch repair with some wood grain painting to help it blend in, and then apply new finish and find a replacement key for the fold down door.

Patio / Laying Paving Slabs

In this video I lay a subbase foundation for my patio using MOT Type 1 hardcore, compact it all, and then mix up some mortar using sharp sand, cement and water for laying some 450mm square riven concrete paving slabs, and then I can do the pointing between the slabs.
