I used Duco Cement and it worked great. Any idea how it compares to Barge Cement?

Never encountered Duco Cement. Barge is like extra heavy duty rubber cement.

The leather is here, now I have to get off my butt and get busy. First, I have to make up a pattern and pick up some barge cement and rawhide lacing.

I'm going to order the Barge cement from Tandy today. Once it gets here, it's on.

CA, don't know if I mentioned this, I like to taper the welt so it's somewhat triangular in cross section, wider at the front. This helps eliminate gaps where the knife blade can work in and cut the stitching. I use a tool called a skiver to do this, but if this is going to be your only project you probably don't want to buy one. Should be able to do it with any sharp knife, easier yet on a belt sander. How are you planning to finish your edges?

I figured to hit the edges with a belt sander and some leather dye.

I'm going to lace and glue it together. However, I'm concerned that fastening the belt loop will need more than Barge cement. Any suggestions?
