Hand Cane - Traditional Seven Step Hand Caning (with drilled holes)
Holes are drilled around the perimeter of the chair frame and individual strands of cane are hand woven through the series of drilled holes.
Pre-woven sheet cane is set into a routed out groove on the top side of chair, held in place with a reed spline, no holes drilled in framework.
Binding cane or rattan is used to weave Danish Mid Century Modern furniture.

Hanging medallions can be woven in a sunrise pattern or using the seven step hand cane method.
This project consisted of a three seater settee with three hanging medallions on the backrest and two arm chairs with hanging medallions. The backs of all pieces were completed in the Sunrise pattern and the arms were completed in the standard seven step hand cane method.
The rising sun pattern forms a sun ray with tight holes at the bottom of the ray and wider spaced holes along the sides and top of the ray.
The setting sun pattern forms a sun ray with tight holes at the top and the sides of the ray and wider spaced holes at the bottom of the ray.
Blind Caning / French Caning is when the holes of a hand caned chair do not go all the way through the chair frame.
Double Sided Caning is when both sides of the chair frame is caned. Double caned surfaces are also usually blind caned as well.
