How to Install Cane Webbing in Furniture
In this Rockler demonstration you'll learn how to install traditional cane webbing in furniture projects. Cane webbing has been used in furniture making for centuries. Rattan cane is exceptionally durable, making it a good choice for heavy-duty applications, such as chair seats. Cane webbing can also be used as a panel material in doors or cabinet backs, adding an interesting texture to a project.
The cabinet features cane webbing door panels. The cane webbing soaked in water and then secured with reed spline that wedges the cane webbing into a channel that is cut around the door frame opening. The cane shrinks and tightens as it dries, leaving a panel that is as tight as a drum.
