Baren cover pictures, as promised, but I still want to use duct tape...

Here are the pictures of my attempt at recovering the baren for the first time. It's not a thing a beauty but it amazingly works just fine. I still think a double layer of duct tape would work "ducky" as my hubby would say. But who am I to question the masters...

Let's see, the "knot" is a bit funky and definitely not symetrical but it is nice and tight. Also a bit bigger handle than my previous but I see that I can correct that by trimming the skin thinner.

After a little scare it really shrank right to the baren and now looks pretty good. A few more hundred to practice and I will be an expert...or maybe not.


  1. Boy! It looks perfect to me. You should see some of mine....

  2. Well, I don't know...Dave hasn't seen it yet!
