I’m getting the hang of this leatherette re-wrapping thing and am getting to the point where I’m almost enjoying the process. The Gerstner videos helped but I’ve found a few tricks that make the job go much better.
1) I apply glue to only one face at a time.
2) Pre-heating the wood surface with a heat gun REALLY helps out A LOT! It keeps the glue nice and sticky and you don’t get loose spots after the glue cools.
Thanks for the Tip! I’ll trythe hear gun trick. I’m in the process of recovering a box so every bit helps. I thought I did a good job on the lid…. until it dried and I saw bubbles…. so I”l be starting over. I’m going to try to salvage it if possible. I think I’ll be able to loosen the areas needing re-gluing with a steamer… wish me luck!?
