Any advice as to which is the best glue to attach book cloth to early wood to cabinets with no bleed through?

Local craft store should have Mod Podge or other fabric glue that is suitable.

Hi Merrill,
I can't advise on what best glue to use. But to avoid bleed-through I would first seal the wood cabinet with a couple of coats of shellac. Shellac will avoid almost any bleed-through and any type of glue should adhere to it, other than those with a urethane base.

The Mod Podge is a sealer and glue in one.

I like adhesive transfer tape. It's like telephone tape without the cellophane. Just lay in down, peel up the backing, and press the cloth into place. You can do a little repositioning as you work and it's a dry adhesive to begin with, so you don't have to wait for the glue to dry.
