I did a google search and where I got it from
didn't come up , moved the page ,
finally I typed in caning chairs by thomas klenck
and that worked so if this url doesn't work type in caning chairs by Thomas klenck and it should work .
things I learnt doing this is . use long strands
soak for 15 min and keep getting it damp with a rag . But not to wet you go both directions twice so move your starting hole over one on the sec row , If you look underneath you'll have only one strand between each hole . Makes it easier to tie off .
This is the first caning job . the wife did one and I did the other . She was about to throw her's out the window several times . We spent a couple nights working on and off on them.
They are just what we were looking for. the right size and shape They didn't turn out to bad
I didn't think
Alway looking for new things to learn how to do .
