Re: Rebinding with original mill boards.

My thinking on this is that since the boards are C18 (handmade) and
have remained in plane, they are unlikely to turn into potato chips
at this late date.

If a little bell is going off in your head (probably is; otherwise you

the boards with a good machine-made paper an hour, or so, before laying
on the leather.
