I bought this caning needle and...
I bought this caning needle and also come caning pegs to re-cane a broken antique chair from my childhood. It was my first caning attempt, and I challenge you to find my two little goofs! The caning needle was a huge help in "stage four" of the YouTube DIY video link (youtube.com/watch?v=wv7YfDIsjtE). The video shows the guy doing it by hand, but I don't see how. The weave is so tight at that stage that I couldn't work the cane through without this needle.  All I used for my project were caning pegs available through Rockler, a few extra golf tees-not as good as the pegs, but they sort of work if you need extras- 3mm chair cane, a binding cane strip, a tub of water, wash cloth and spray bottle. Oh. I also bought a 3/16" dowel at Hobby Lobby to cut into pieces for plugging every other hole when finishing off. This project looks much less difficult than it is-affordable and frankly impressive.

The caning needle sped up the process for the first couple of rows to cross. As webbing got tighter on the diagonal rows, it was little or no help.
