Can cement-concrete be used as fillings for a hole in my tooth?

Thank you for your time and effort teach

I do this all the time as a plumber we just float the concrete after it starts to set a bit instead of using a leveling compound but we still do use the ol 2x4 method lol

Great tip mixing the concrete. I've seen guys stirring up joint compound that way, but never really thought of that one. Btw - I was laughing thinking..."How the heck did he not split that wood driving those screws in that little box?"

I am a 31 yr old business contractor. I LOVE your videos so informative. You really are a pleasure to watch. The techniques that you imply are straight forward I always learn something new watching your videos. Keep them coming

Thanks for the video and sharing your experience with us! How do you manage the height for the toilet drain? Thanks

hey Jeff great video, i have a question about covering an old chimney I found in my house. What would be the best way to wrap it in stone? I am thinking about doing something similar to what you guys did with the stone on the fireplace video but my brick is very brittle. Thanks for the great content!

First...NOTHING wrong with old school. Sadly, every generation thinks it's so much smarter than the next. Not that I'm so smart, but I've always asked no matter which generation... Why are you doing it the hard way? Funny how angry that makes people. And secondly... I love reading the comments section. People have good questions and good ideas, and you always try to have the right/best answer. Thank you guys for another informative video.

I do this pail trick all the time when I parge foundations..I can't stress it enough to the new guys I work with.. "Put the right amount of water in the pail from the beginning and it will mix up so fast and easy"Rather than adding a little bit more and a little bit more...

Your videos, including this one are helpful. Having said so, I believe a concrete bonding primer supposed to be applied on old concrete as new one does not bind to old
Jason Beal Sunday, February 4th, 2018
Thanks Jeff for that old timer trick!! I would like to make a suggestion for a video if I can? I need to install new shingles on my roof. I am a single dad so hiring the job out is not an option! If you don’t have a house in need of a roof I have the perfect one! 😂 Thanks again for sharing your knowledge with us. -Jason

Mr.Thorman but for god lprostrate to you genius still no. one in world
Greg Coyle Sunday, February 4th, 2018
Thanks for the video, Jeff - really helpful as always. I have a question, though. In another project I saw you used a DMX barrier (the black dimpled stuff) on the floor, and I thought it was the first thing you did. If you were to use it here on this project, would it go down in pretty much the next step? the fact that you have the exterior walls framed and insulated already is confusing to me.

Awesome job! I liked this and the kitchen demo video.. it's informative. If I ever purchase a home with an unfinished basement I know I can do it.. with time of course
opin ion Sunday, February 4th, 2018
i learned new technique from this jeff. most people i saw doing this, are commonly using nails, and i scratch my head, when they about to remove the wood..take them an awful time. using screws are more practical. thanks.
