    Sweet! Your brother is sure to be pleased with the surprise.

    I've used the flocking kits from Rockler and gotten great results with the stuff. It's also durable...I flocked the dividers in my pool cue case about 4 or 5 years ago and they're still holding up nicely despite weekly pool matches.

    Thanks Vaughn, I'm not at all familiar with flocking, is it simply applying some adhesive and shaking whatever it is all around to coat? Rockler's only about 3 miles from here, I'll have to figure out what color That peel & stick stuff can really be a bear to apply and have it look good

    Another beauty Ken

    I've never tried flocking before either. I've always wondered if it could be applied evenly

    Another on here that thinks you cheating Ken but keep it up

    Oh oh Vaughn looks like the month of June/ July is turning into oh teacher we need you.

    Another here that has never done it knows nothing about it and always been weary of durability so its good to hear your report but now we need you to spill the beans on how to do

    The flocking is easy. You brush on the adhesive (colored to match the fibers), then while it's still wet, coat it heavily with the fuzzy stuff. The kit includes a cardboard tube "puffer" to sort of spray the fibers onto the glue. Put it on heavy, then let it sit overnight to dry. After it has dried, you just knock or blow the excess fibers off (I do it onto a bag or box so I can save the leftovers.) If there are any bare or sparse spots, you can just apply more glue to those spots and repeat the process. Once it's all finished, you can't tell there was any patching done.
