I finished the library chair the other day but before i can post about that i'll need some decent pictures. Perhaps later today after work, or if not, i can make them over the weekend? Anyway, here's how the seat was made.
A few weeks ago I did a test piece on caning with dental floss, because it's flat and smooth properties resemble cain best. It's the one on the right. But it was really happy about it; still being out of scale & too big!
I figured i'd get back to it when i would start on the actual seat itself. But in the meantime I got some unexpected but much appreciated help! Many thanks to Fransisco from Miniarquitect, who makes the most stunning bistro chairs! He convinced me to use thread (which is thinner) and taught me how you can still make it look great. Because I was a bit apprehensive of the fibers showing but now I know there are ways to overcome that. And then it all made sense… It definitely out ways floss and you can go way smaller, making it more close to scale.
I have to say, not bad :) Not bad at all! And way better than floss! So thank you here too Fransisco :)
There are many great tutorials on the internet and if you're interested here's a really nice one on caning;
Have a great day,
