The piece of leather measures approx 11" x 13" each, and can handle a diameter of about 2 1/4". Occasionally we ship 2 pieces of leather approx. 10" x 7" each that will cover the same diameter. This is the nice stuff, latigo, 5 to 7 ounce rating.
WoodenBoat issue #68 has a helpful article by Larry Montgomery about leathers, and talks about his preferred treatment with lanolin, available at most drug stores.
Great product. Thank you.
I used it to leather a mast. The leather was nice quality and the needles and twine were good. No complaints.
Communication was excellent and arrival was prompt. Thanks!
I'm happy with the product, though it took more effort on my part than I guessed. My old leathers had worn through. I bought a new leather punch for the 80-ish 2 mm punches required. I thought the supplied waxed line might not be enough, but it was. The squeaks in my rowing are now gone...thought it was from the oarlocks themselves, but maybe the old leather somehow contributed to that? That's a mystery.
A great little kit with all you need.
