|Leather trim arrived in the post|
|Down to the metal after removing old cracked veneer|
|Make a template from paper and cut new veneer to size|
Lo and behold, Rene went to all the trouble of sending me some, and despite my protests he refused to accept any payment!
|Glue it down and add a little varnish, and trim to follow soon|
Well, I am delighted to report that Alfonso The Second is now fully recovered and last weekend I fitted the veneer, but to finish it off nicely I sent away for some nice leather trim to put around the edges.
That's just arrived in the post, and so I now have a very exciting Saturday to look forward to when I come to fit it.
It doesn't take a lot to get me excited.
