Jay Blades and the team bring three treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life.

Furniture restorer Will Kirk is tasked with repairing a writing bureau owned by Kathryn Lovell and her dad John from Northamptonshire. The bureau belonged to Kathryn’s grandfather, who ran the village post office for decades and was loved by all. However, the wood is now warped and split, the desk panel that folds down has suffered a nasty fracture, and a main hinge is broken.

Liz McMordie and her brother Sam from Northern Ireland are hoping precious metals expert Brenton West can preserve a link to their rich farming heritage. In the 1950s, their father won the world ploughing championships three times, but his trophies are now worn, scratched and chipped. Brenton gets to work recreating some tiny missing parts and gold-plates the silver ploughs.

Leather expert Susie is intrigued by a pair of dancing clogs. Louise Robertson from Oxford owns the clogs, which were handmade by her grandfather over a century ago. Susie nourishes the parched, stiff leather, fills in the many holes left by woodworm and returns the clogs to stand testament to Louise’s family’s dancing legacy and the craftsman that created them.
