Craig, Thanks so much for the clamps idea. I have a desk rocker, the kind that have a rocking mechanism underneath, and it was brought to me already removed from the mechanism. It also has a very deep "skirt" around it. Nearly impossible to cane in an easy way! I tried to cane with it standing on its side, and on its back. I thought it may as well be upside down, so I did that ! I have been caning it from the bottom---looking through the seat---backwards you might say. I saw your clamping usage, and immediately got out my clamps ! Two are shorter than the others, but that enables me to have the seat at an angle that is very easy to access.This works !!!
You are so right much easier to adjust and unhook rehook, & I put some electric tape over the end that goes onto the table so they don't scratch up the work surface or screech as I spin the chair... more
