Re: [BKARTS] Naugahyde

But wouldn't it be beside the point to use PVA or hide
glue if you're using naugahyde to avoid the animal
Right materials for the right project and all that...

    I have used naugahyde--- one with an imitation
lizard grain--- and,
although  I hate to admit it, it looks terrific.  (And
I am somewhat of a purist.)  I use it for rebinding
things that have to be durable:
reference texts, cookbooks, etc.
    You're right:  it's a pain to glue.  I glue the
naugahyde to the boards with PVA+wheatstarch or with
hide glue (very stinky.)  Then I glue the
turndown to the boards with Walmart seam adhesive.
