I saw this in Fine Woodworking and thought I would try my hand at it. I think it went well, my Boys loved going into the woods to collect the wood for the chair and then cleaning them of. My back yard looked like a mill with all the tree bark all over the place lots of fun and a nice project to get my kids into Woodworking.

This is a very interesting project and it is obvious that you did a great job with it.

I hope you will answer a few questions.

Was the wood green and, if so, are you concerned about movement as it dries?

What kind of wood is it?

How is the “caning” connected to the frame?

What kind of finish, if any, did you use?

The Wood was not green I had dryed it for Three months sp movement will be very little. It is maple saplings
The seat is a 1’’ Shaker Tape it is attached by tacks to the in side of the Seat Rails The finish is a Danish Oil finish I could have used poly but the oil gives it a much nicer feel silky I think I would say.

I hope this answers your Questions if you have more I will do my best to answer them.
