Have you ever used this alternate way to finish the binder cane corners when weaving a trapezoidal hole-to-hole cane chair, rather than pegging them off?
Here’s a handy chair caning tip of the day to make your cane weaving look its best.
How-to Finish Binder Hole Cane Corners
I love using this quick, clean method to finish off or treat the cane in the drilled hole corners of a trapezoidal cane seat chair when applying the last of the seven steps of lace caning, the binder cord.
Each of the four corner holes on this hole-to-hole traditional cane seat using the wide binding cane was overlapped.
Watch the video below and you’ll see what I mean!
The standard method of finishing off those corners is to put both ends of the binder cord in the corners. Then put a small wooden dowel or peg in the corner to hold the ends of the strands.
But I think this alternative method of overlapping the wide binding cane strands saves a step (by not using the peg) and looks cleaner and neater. Won’t you agree?
