Double Blind Cane Chair
This has got to be one of the most challenging cane projects we ever get in. This beautiful French Style arm chair has a very fine cane so there are lots of little strands to weave. But in addition to that, the chair is old enough that the holes the cane goes in are not evenly spaced! And some of the holes do not go all the way through so we have to do something called 'blind cane' which is a tricky process. To further complecate the style of this weaving, the entire back has two layers of cane, one facing the inside and one facing the outside of the chair! This time we only have to repair the seat. Lucky for the owners because otherwise, they would have had a much, much more difficult project on their hands.
