Been a long cold winter so i decided to use up some scrap lumber and build some kids chairs to possibly sell. Got into caning and decided to practice my skills on the chairs. Tried a variety of weaves and materials, still have a stack to do. well Keeps me out of trouble.

Mike, maybe some details on the chair build? I’m about to try a windsor. I built a pair of Stickley children’s chairs for my grandkids last year. Oh, and Liberty is an annual stop for us every June along with Hulls. Old tool heaven

Thanks for the comments. Took a caning class at the local hs a while back. But pretty much taught myself caning from youtube and booklets. Not much to it .Just have to be attentive to your weave and have patience.
