Timeless Restoration Methods

When the plaster finished setting, Bucco and his crew sanded the surfaces smooth by hand before they started work on the two dozen or so other damaged areas. Each hole in the crown took about 4 hours to repair, start to finish, using pretty much the same methods tradesmen would have used a century ago.
