  • Do I need shellac or varnish or what to make my dining table for every day use?

    My dining table is dark wood and still has a pretty finish. But is always protected by pads and a table cloth, so we never see it. I want to paint it with a clear SOMETHING so we don't have to worry about it. Hot drinks, wet spills, writing on it, etc. What should I use?

In the summer however I have 4 window ac units running so those curtains can be no longer than 40 inches. I want to find a way to fold the curtain under and attach it to the back so they can easily be let down in the winter and pulled up in the summer but have no possibility of ever covering the ac unit.

  • Can i pour a new top layer of cement on an existing uneven slab with huge cracks.?

    Can i pour a new top layer of cement on an existing uneven slab with huge cracks.?

    Best answer: you can. The new slab will need to be at least six inches thick with rebar. The concrete with fiberglass would add extra strength. A contractor poured my garage floor 14x21 with only six concrete posts into sub grade about 2 feet in diameter using this method and it is fine after 15 years.
