Hi Harvey,

Tom has detailed photos and instructions here:

http://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/Leather-Bar-Wrapping

I've installed two sets of his leather bar wrap over the past couple weeks. I used the method described in Tom's link with two changes: 1) I started at the top, wrapping from inside to outside, down to the ends, and 2) I used contact cement at the end rather than wallboard cement. Otherwise, I did the same and it came out great!

I'll post photos sometime.

Cheers!

David
