How Does Your Cane Bottom Look? Bottoms Up and Take a Gander!

Today’s WEDNESDAY WICKER WISDOM deals with the way the bottom or underneath side of a hole-to-hole cane chair looks, NOT your own bottom, thankfully!

How neatly do you tie off the ends of your cane strands when weaving a 7-step pattern traditional hole cane seat? If you follow my directions and use my “No-Knot” system of dealing with the ends it won’t look like the one below in this picture. Can you believe that hot mess? Yikes!

This is the way you do NOT want to tie off end strands when chair caning!


This is just about the worst job of tying cane knots on the bottom of a chair seat as I have ever seen! And to top it all off, the caning pattern was done all wrong, too.

The bottom of your hole-to-hole cane seats should look more neat and attractive like this:

To get the smooth, nice look to your cane bottoms without tying all those nasty knots, look at my video the “No-Knot System of Tying Knots”

Here’s the finished product using the traditional 7-step pattern in this hole cane seat:
