Generation Next | Repairing a Paver Walkway
Roger teaches his apprentice how to identify and repair a walkway that’s been damaged by chipmunks. All the materials Roger used, including the rubber hammer, stone dust, and concrete, can all be found at home centers and landscape supply stores.
How to Patch a Chipped Wood Floor. Tom patches a chipped wood floor using a Dutchman and hand tools. Everything Tom used for this project, including the hand saw, block plane, utility knife, and stain, can be found at home centers.
Tom used flooring saved by the homeowner, but flooring can also be found at home centers, lumber yards, and flooring retailers. For a patch, use the same type of wood and look for a piece that has a similar grain to the floor being patched.
Tom secured the Dutchman to the floor using wood glue and polyurethane glue, both manufactured by Gorilla Glue.
The workbench Tom made the Dutchman on is manufactured by Kreg.
