As promised i'd show you what the caning was all about; it will become the seat of a regency library chair. It's a chair you can flip open to turn into a little step. So you can reach the books on the highest shelfs.
Here's the original i'm reproducing. A pretty early one made by Morgan and Sanders in 1815
I made dowels using a draw plate so all the joints are reinforced.
All these little pieces fit together like a puzzle to form the top part. That's now halfway done.
It still needs 2 back splash pieces, but because they are bend they require a little more drying through.
In the meantime i plan to continue on the lower part of the chair this weekend. Hope you enjoy your miniatures too this weekend,
