I’m restoring a couple of old machinist chests that originally had a leatherette covering on them. Leatherette is also known as oilcloth so I ordered a couple of yards. It showed up today and was WAY too shiny.
Regular leather is way too thick.
So I need a source for black leatherette, the non-shiny kind. There are two types of oilcloth – a thick paper with a cloth backing and a polyester with cotton backing. Both are treated to be water-resistant. I need either one, but not shiny.
If I could find the covering they use for guitar cases, if it’s thin enough then it would do as a last resort too although the texture really isn’t right.
Any help would be appreciated.
