Give life to old cane furniture as well as weaving seats and backs for new pieces. Traditional techniques and new shortcuts make caning with wicker, rattan, raw-hide, and other materials easy. Useful charts detail how much fiber to buy and what standard lengths are available. “An excellent purchase for any size library.”—Library Journal.

From Library Journal:

Using clear, easy-to-understand, black-and-white illustrations, this handbook shows how to replace complete sections as well as make small area repairs on wicker furniture. It provides step-by-step directions and illustrations for a variety of different types of wicker, including cane, rush, splint, Shaker tape, rawhide, Danish cord, and binder cane. Hand-weaving patterns range from simple to complex. The extensive manual also covers special techniques and proper maintenance of woven furniture. Since caning techniques do not readily become outdated, institutions need not worry about keeping up with current titles. However, if your collection lacks material in this area, The Caner's Handbook makes an excellent purchase for any size library.
