Not as difficult as I thought. I had to use two staples because the first one was crooked. Neither staple sank flush, so I tapped them down with a hammer. Then I took off the backing for the adhesive as I went, carefully overlapping just a bit and pulling some tension as I went. At the end, I didn't have a proper tool to give the leather a tapered finish, so I used extra finishing tape to cover it. I was putting an overgrip on it anyways. It came out looking and feeling very good. It will be easy enough to go back and finish the leather properly if I want to. There's enough slack left at the top. What kind of tool do you use to cut leather cleanly?
