it’s not pretty, but it’s done…….
Yes, there actually is a baren underneath
all of those clamps, clips and rubber bands!
Since my first three attempts at re-covering my baren
failed miserably, I decided to enlist a little
Clearly it’s unconventional,
but really was helpful in holding
everything in place while
I folded the edges in, and twisted
the handles together.
I had way too much material along the edges,
but decided to leave it “as is”
for fear of splitting the bamboo if
I tried to trim the excess away.
Hopefully it won’t fall apart the first time I use it!
