    I don't know about pleather on wood, but I use 3M spray glue. I used it to apply vinyl material over a fiberglass enclosure. Not too sure about wood, probably will work if plywood and not partical board.



    Hope this helps.

    I wouldn't use that 3m spray adhesive for anything. Get a hold of some Misty Glue Spray Adhesive

    It is going to be very difficult to have no seams. What I would do is take the box apart and wrap each piece of wood individually. Of course, you would only need to cover the outside of it. To do this, spray the wood with the 3M adhesive spray, as well as the pleather. Let it sit for about 10 minutes, then take it and stretch it over the edges and use a staple gun on the back (the side that will be on the inside of the box). Then screw it back together. In this way, you'll have seams of course at the edges, but at least they will be organized.

    BTW, I've always used 3M's Super Trim Adhesive. It seems to hold better than anything else.

    you get a thin layer of foam, use the glue spray. Then leather over it..also glue spray and staple gun back inside.
    Mine needs to be updated.
