splint weave seat
(or back)
that looks like this:

Splint Seat Weaving

I wrote this pattern to compliment the Herringbone Weave booklet.
This is the same basic tradition weave, only using wider materials.
This pattern speaks of days gone by, a successful early chair
bottom. Splint was readily manufactured 'down on the farm' for
baskets and chair seating. It is considered not as formal as
Rushing. However once you master this pattern, you may move
on to others such as the Diamond Weave. From there your
imagination is the limit.

The weave may appear difficult at first,
but with these instructions your project will go easy.
The book discussed different widths, as well as joining and
finishing techniques.

There have been recently several 'knockoffs'
to this pattern book.
They say imitation is flattery, but the directions
are distressing to me.
It is important to weave a solid, tight seat, your time and
craftsmanship is important.

Caning (seat weaving) is fun,
and as I discuss the frame of mind is important.
Sit back, take the pressure away, andenjoy the process.
