Splint-class-studentLearn to weave with splint reed in a herringbone twill pattern on a chair or stool with rails.

General: This style of caning is also called “split weaving” because the authentic material was split off of the bark of a tree (usually hickory or oak). Authentic bark is harvested in the spring and is extremely labor intensive and costly. The most affordable and common way to replace your splint seat is with flat reed. Any chair with four rails can be repaired with this technique.

Binder cane is a rounded reed with a natural coating and is often seen on large porch rocking chairs and mid-century chairs. Binder cane is lovely but hard on the hands and takes twice as long to weave as splint reed.
