Some rolltops are entirely covered by the cloth, ie. the entire width. In our case the original had five 6" strips. I'm = not sure how it was originally attached, but we used contact cement.   We reassambled in a different order to take advantage of the variations in wood color. Two were warped but seemed to conform when the strips were = laid out and forced by a bit of fixturing.   Jon Fick Christ Memorial Church Williston, VT

I used contact cement to attach the miniature wood siding; it was very easy to apply. I then painted it yellow. It looked beautiful, and our daughter loved it. Five or six years later, the siding started popping off. The contact cement completely lost its strength. Be warned. Back to hide = glue!!!     Forrest

The = glue worked perfectly and lasted. Th eonly failure was when a flood soaked the sculpture that had been thus repaird and the glue let go, but the piece = was put back together and when it dreid out the glue had rehardened. I once tried Duco cement and had the same sort of problem Forrest did, it =   gave out, so back to Elmers I went.   Randall http://members.aol.com/mpmollerorgan/
