Re-furbish of original hexagonal case

Recommended Posts

The original hexagonal wooden case which came with one of my instruments has finally given

up the ghost, and the screws fixing the hinges to the box/lid have pulled out.


I need to re-fix them (probably the easy part), but while I'm at it, I might as well do a re-furbish.


The fabric lining is completely faded, and basically done-for, so, what sort of material should I

use to re-line the box? More specifically, what sort of glue should I use to fix the fabric to the

inside of the box/lid? I'm thinking good-old fashioned bookbinders paste which (presumably)

will not stain the fabric. The current fabric is not 'fluffy' but is a thin, fine-weave, linen-like quality.

I think I should probably try and replace it with something similar...


What sort of leather should I use to replace the carrying strap?


Thanks in advance
