I wood Burn art and doing my first oar from an old canoe. I have ac couple of cracks in the handle of the oar and decided to put leather around the handle part. Not sure how to do this with out making a big mess. I do one of a kind stuff never done twice so it is very important this is done right. Any one out there that can help? One day real soon I plan on trying to burn leather with my wood burner, is this possible?

If you’re asking how to adhere leather to wood, contact cement works really well. It can be a little messy, but it’s not too bad if you’re careful. It’s fairly thick so you can put it only where you want it then press the pieces together when the cement is ready.
