My Chair Caning Project


I've discovered chair caning and here's my first project.

I had intended to do the classic six-sided pattern but ended up with something like the double lace Victoria. The holes became tight and impossible to make the final finishing border. I'm ok with these "mistakes." The chair is extremely sturdy and looks nice, and it also looks handmade without the border.
