Default Recommendations for re-leathering bellows

Seeking recommendations to have bellows restored. The cheeks boards are cleaned up and look serviceable. Inlet valve has new flapper. The bellows outlet needs leather ‘tube’ to connect the cheek board to the bone stock that connects with the pipebag. The leather tube is sewn to the face of the cheek board rather than the angled metal fittings on contemporary pipes.

This bellows accompanied a set of late 18th century-early 19th century laburnum wood border pipes I had restored. The stocks and mounts are bone.
